Parkesburg And Two Neighboring Fire Companies Receive Daily Local Red Rose


Parkesburg’s, Atglen’s and Pomeroy’s volunteer fire companies and the communities they serve, received a Rose over the weekend from West Chester’s Daily Local News.

Each Saturday, editors at the paper take a moment to recognize positive, and not so positive, events, accomplishments and developments around Chester County on the editorial page of the paper, awarding an editorial ‘Rose’ or ‘Thorns’ to distinguish the development/accomplishment

Saturdays was our volunteer fire company’s turn and those leaders participating in regional talks focused on merging the Parkesburg, Atglen and Pomeroy fire companies.

Here’s what the daily local wrote at the top of their Roses and Thorn column Saturday morning.

“[We want to] recognize the Atglen, Parkesburg and Pomeroy Fire companies and their participating communities for the ongoing discussions to merge the three companies together into a single western Chester County firefighting organization. Their discussions took another step forward this week. Those involved in the discussion have never seen this level of cooperation and collaboration. Theses municipalities and fire companies, as well as their representatives in the discussions, have earned and deserve a big Red Rose.”

A big Red Rose it is!
