Lynbrook Juniors Give to Fallen Firefighter’s Cause

Story by Ex-Captain Steve Grogan, Photos by Firefighter Brian Grogan

Each year the young members of the Lynbrook Junior Fire Department hold a car wash and the money raised is donated to a worthy cause.  Last year they donated the proceeds to the family of former Lynbrook Fire Department Ex-Captain Jeffrey Wiener who was killed in action in Iraq in 2005.   This year the Juniors donated the $500 raised at their recent car wash to a scholarship fund set up in the name of Malverne volunteer firefighter Paul Brady who died in the line of duty at the Malverne firehouse on July 30, 2006.   

 The Lynbrook Juniors presented the check to the Malverne Fire Department at their monthly meeting held on December 18, 2006.     

In the above photo Lynbrook Junior Captain Danny Dempsey, center left, presented the $500 check to Malverne Fire Chief Mike Latronico, center right, at the meeting.   To the left of Dempsey are Junior Lieutenants Allison Matzen and Mike Isler, along with Junior firefighter Michael Rivera.    Also on hand for the presentation, on the right, were Lynbrook Fire Chief Keith Festa, and Assistant Chiefs Robert Occhipinti, John O’Reilly, and Kevin Bien.  Each of the present four Lynbrook Fire Chiefs are former members of the Lynbrook Junior Fire Department program.
