WASHINGTON ENGINE COMPANY, 2016 MEMORIAL DAY SERVICE

Welcome to Everything Croton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

WASHINGTON ENGINE/CROTON FIRE DEPT. FB PAGE; 25 PLUS PHOTOS: Today, in front of nearly 90 members and guests, the Washington Engine Company No. 2 held their annual Memorial Day Service at our firehouse. The event, as it has been for many years, was emceed by Company President Joe Streany.

As we do each year, we take the time to remember all of those that have served our nation, as well as all of our members that are no longer with us. The list of our fallen members was read by Past Chiefs Stephen Dominello, John Munson and Art Roosa Jr.

This year, we dedicated the day to two of our past Captains - Louis Giglio and Elwood "Skip" Munson - whom passed away since last Memorial Day. We also remembered Associate Member Elwood "Woody" Munson who suddenly died a few weeks ago.

At our May 23rd Company Meeting, the Company elected to appoint Richard Pusatere as an Honorary Member, posthumously. Pusatere was the Chief Engineer of the El Faro cargo ship which sank with all 33 crew members aboard on October 1, 2015 in the wake of Hurricane Juaqin.
