This year we honored Josh Maddox of the Frenchtown Fire Department, who has served for 18 years. Chief Wendy Stevens submitted his nomination. He brought his family with him. They included his wife April and children :Kayla, Kaden, Kalynn, Katie, Kaleb, Karson, Kayson, Kendell and Khloe.
He got a Statue (donated by the Monroe Sports Center) and a $250 check that he donated to a school that will have pupils who want to become firefighters. There was a nice article in the Monroe News today.
Cakes by Stephanie donated the cake for the lunch.
This was our 20th year of celebrating the Firefighter of the Year.
