September Explorer Post 11 Work Party
       In September, members of Explorer Post 11 and members of the East Greenbush Fire Department assisted a local establishment in need. While returning from a call, members noticed that the Hays Road VFW post's property was overgrown and in need of some cleanup.Earlier this year, the East Greenbush Fire Department responded to the post to extinguish a lawnmower fire and, ever since, the lawn has been tough to maintain.
       Members of the department and explorer post volunteered their time to assist with mowing the lawn and taking care of some general work around the property. While cleaning up around the property, the members noticed that the halyard on the flag pole was broken and a new flag was also needed. [...]

8/27/2021 Chuck Hellmuth Memories.
        The East Greenbush Fire Company has lost a dear friend of ours.
        Past Chief and Life Member Chuck Hellmuth passed away earlier this morning. Chuck got his start in the fire service with the E.F. Hose Company in the City of Rensselaer in 1956.
        In the late '60s, Chuck and his family moved to East Greenbush and joined the Sherwood Park Fire Company. Chuck made the move with about a dozen other members to the East Greenbush Fire Company when Sherwood Park merged with East Greenbush in the early '70s. Chuck served as our Chief in 1978, and then again in 1987 and 1988.
        It is always tough to lose someone in any organization; it is devastating to lose someone like Chuck. His institutional memory (and his penchant for attending all things fraternal) is something that can never be replaced. Rest in peace, friend.
