JOHN'S PHOTOS FOR THE WEEK

This week I'd like to give a shout out to the Box 52 Association. While I don't make many meetings, I have made many friends through the organization and greatly appreciate all they do for the fire buff community. A great organization and a great group of people. I big thank you to the dedicated members that give a lot of their time to provide great entertainment and enjoyment to so many. Who knows where Johnny G will end up next.

I am always looking for photos of old Stoneham (Mass) apparatus, incidents or members for my personal collection if anyone can help. A digital scan is perfectly fine, I don't need an original as long as the scan is big enough to print out. I also can scan photos, slides and negatives and then give them back to you if that is easier. CLICK FOR EMAIL.
