Special to The Telegraph •
Penbrook, Pa.. Feb. 20. —For sev
eral years after this town was organ- ;
lzed small tires proved a constant j
menace to the property owners. After j
several disastrous tires members of the
old town council and prominent men
of the town held a meeting one night
In the old town hall and decided to
organize a fire company.
On March 29, 1906, the company
was finally organized under the name
of the Citizens' Fire Company, No. 1.
Thirty charter members joined and
elected the following officers: A. Lin
coln Shope, president; U. A. Heck,
chief; B. R. Speas, recording secre
tary: C. L. Wirt, financial secretary,
and George Shope, treasurer.
Two small ten-gallon chemicals were
placed on a truck, which was pulled to
(Ires. Good service was done with this
for the first few years, but recently
an up-to-date hand chemical engine
has been purchased. In the early his
tory of the town bucket brigades were
necessary at the fires, but three years
ago fire plugs were placed about the
town and are now used.
The last big fire ocurred four years
ago, at which time the Are company
did excellent work.
Since the organization of the com
pany the membership has grown won
derfully. As a means of keeping the
men together It was decided to hold
semiannual banquets. To-nlght the
eighth annual banquet will be held In
