Retired Punxsy firefighters recall days of old

October 17, 2011

PUNXSUTAWNEY — Nearly 50 years of firefighting came to a close for two members of the Lindsey Fire Company, who recently submitted their resignations for the purpose of retirement to Punxsutawney Borough Council.

Frank Davis and Don Ross have decided to call it a career as volunteer firefighters. Both were members of the original scuba team that formed in 1974.

Ross said he became a member of Lindsey in 1962, and was the first in his family to do so.
