The Laurel Volunteer Fire Department presented its Member of the Month Awards during a recent department meeting. Fire fighters Steve Paratore, Ross Nelson and Robert Grant were presented certificates and gift cards from President Vic Whipple and Chief Trey Kelso.

In a new addition to the monthly awards program, Auxiliary President May-Lynn Bayles has started a similar program for the Auxiliary membership. Auxiliary members Sue Frost, Sharon Mitchell and Barbara Sellner received certificates of recognition at a recent Auxiliary meeting.

Two seniors at Reservoir High, Shannon Sellner and Casey Gray, received certificates in recognition of their volunteerism with the Auxiliary for the past four years.
