Bridge Dedication to Fallen Emmitsburg Firefighter
Following a 4-year construction project, completion of a new bridge on East Main Street (Maryland Route 140) in Emmitsburg / Frederick County, a formal dedication ceremony will honor the memory of the late Vigilant Hose Company (VHC) Firefighter Terry Lee Myers on Saturday, July 25, 2020, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The event is open to the public while following CDC guidelines of face covering and social distancing. Firefighter Myers died in the Line of Duty on February 15, 1999, of a heart attack while operating at the scene of a brush fire on the campus of Mount Saint Mary’s University. His family continues to be very active with the VHC. Casual attire is fine. Close by parking will be on Creamery Road off E. Main St. with light fare refreshments to follow at the VHC Activities Building a short distance away.
