GE fire gets new board member, assistant chief

<strong>Good neighbors</strong>

This week I’d like to honor our entire Glen Ellen Volunteer Fire Department. There is no doubt, certainly not for me, that all of these folks are lifesavers, good neighbors, and people we all can – and do – depend upon. They do so much for us. I have a couple of ideas about what we can do in return. But, before I share that, one of the simplest ways you can show appreciation is by a short note of sincere thanks. That can mean as much as anything else. Truly.

I’ve received a few notes lately that warmed me entirely. Thanks Doug; thanks, Scott; yes, thank you Marcie; and even thanks to Will. Each of your responses elicited smiles, which is a lovely treat on any day. But those stories are for another column; for now, I want to concentrate on our much-admired fire folks.

<strong>Cascade of role changes</strong>

I received a great email from our Glen Ellen Fire Chief, Peter Van Fleet, recently. As he begins, “Lots of stuff going on at the firehouse,” and truly there is.
