    • White Mills Fire Department Centennial

    • White Mills Fire Department marked their first 100 years this past weekend with a grand parade and playing host to the 81st annual convention of the Northeast PA Volunteer Firemen’s Federation. Sunshine greeted the parade Saturday, which lasted nearly an hour as at least 23 fire companies and three high school marching bands headed down Route 6 through the village, ending at the ball field. Crowds clapped and waved as units went by, and special groups such as “future firefighters,” children carrying an orange hose. White Mills firefighters, smartly dressed, marched; other long time servants rode in honor. White Mills United Methodist Church had a float, as did the Wayne County Dairy Princess. The Federation Ladies’ Auxiliary marched. Texas Township brought their trucks. Hawley Ambulance came, as did DCNR’s forest fire vehicle.
