CBFD pays respects to veterans on Memorial Day

Members of the Columbia Borough Fire Department placed wreaths at several Columbia locations today to pay their respects to military veterans. Ordinarily, they would have done so during Columbia's parade yesterday, but it was canceled due to a severe weather forecast. The fire company did, however, participate in parades in Marietta and Wrightsville today before laying wreaths. Ever on duty, the firefighters responded to a fire call during wreath-laying, which turned out to be a false alarm and units were canceled. Wreaths were placed at the following locations:

Columbia VFW Post 2435 at 4th & Manor:

Locust Street Park in front of "The Returned Soldier":

American Legion Post #372 on Chestnut Street:
