9/10/2016 Green County Parade. By Peter Lehmann and Greg Forgea.
        On Saturday, September 10th, the East Greenbush Fire Company participated in the 128th Annual Greene County Volunteer Firemen's Association Convention held in Kiskatom, New York. This Annual Convention, held during the month of September, was hosted by the Kiskatom Volunteer Fire Department, who is celebrating 70 years of service. As this convention is comprised of fire companies in Greene County, East Greenbush from Rensselaer County was honored to be invited by the Kiskatom Fire Company to participate. The 23 member strong East Greenbush unit, under the leadership of Chief Robert Lehmann, was led in the line of march by the Red Caps.
        Just before stepping off, the parade came to a quick halt when a large tree fell, bringing down powerlines which landed on a parked fire apparatus. After an hour delay, the local power company arrived, secured the wires, and opened up the road so the parade could continue.
        During the award ceremonies, the East Greenbush Fire Company was awarded the 1st Place Out of County Color Guard trophy and the Best Appearing Overall Unit Out of County trophy.
        The members of the East Greenbush Fire Department would like to thank the Kiskatom Fire Department and the Greene County Fireman's Association for the invitation. A great time was had by all.
