More Old School....

Good Morning All,

Hope everyone is having a good day and trying to stay cool in this heat. As promised, more photos today of all the old school rigs from the parade Saturday held here In Strasburg.

Todays photo is of a 1927 deluge that is privately owned by Laverne Stauffer of the Neffsville fire company. The rig is being driven by his son, Don Stauffer, Chief of the Scullville Fire Company In New Jersey. Both guys are true class acts in the fire service. Laverne is, in my opinon, one of the legends in the fire service here in Lancaster County. Laverne served as a Chief of the Neffsville Fire Company for many years and for many years afterwards, served as the Chief Engineer of the company. The rig that Laverne owns was the very first piece of apparatus ever owned by the Eden Fire Company in Lancaster County.

With regards to yesterdays post, I found out that the rig is a 1938 Mack and did service In Lancaster City from 1938 to 1970..

That is all for today folks, stay safe and cool....
