       Today is a day of historic significance in the Town of East Greenbush and for the East Greenbush Fire Company as we celebrate and mark the 100th Anniversary of the East Greenbush Fire Company.
       Exactly 100 years ago to the day, 17 community members met on the evening of January 7, 1916 to form the East Greenbush Fire Company. A century later, community residents continue to volunteer and serve the residents of the Town of East Greenbush.
        We would like to thank the residents, our business partners and the East Greenbush community for your continued support of the Fire Company. Without your support, we would be unable to provide the services and meet the needs of our community for the last 100 years.
        Most importantly, we want to thank and recognize all of our members, past and present, who have volunteered to serve the Town of East Greenbush over the last 100 years. Without our members, we would not be here today. We hope you can share in our joy and pride as we celebrate this momentous occasion!
