This Day in Dayton, 17 January

After 32 years on the Sheffield Township Volunteer Fire Department, Jerry Arvin retired in January 2000. On January 17, he was treated to a surprise retirement party at the fire station. Fire fighters from the local department and surrounding departments gathered for the party. A representative of the US Fire Marshal’s Office presented Arvin with an award for his service (“Dayton ‘Mayor’ Saluted: Veteran Volunteer Firefighter Retires, unless Needed,” Journal and Courier, 17 January 2000)
