Volunteer fire service members and their guests from Delaware, Maryland and the Eastern Shore of Virginia will be heading to Millsboro to attend the annual Del-Mar-Va Volunteer Firemen’s Association Convention Thursday through Saturday, April 30-May 2. This year’s event, being hosted by the Millsboro Fire Company, will be the 86th annual installment for the men and 81st for the Del-Mar-Va Ladies Auxiliary.
Since the very first meeting of the Del-Mar-Va Association in June 1929, when representatives from 17 fire companies met in Salisbury, Md., the Del-Mar-Va Vounteer Firemen’s Association has had a long and rich history of promoting good will and fellowship among fire service personnel.
From the first convention, hosted by Rescue Fire Company of Cambridge, Md. in May 1930, to its annual Fire Prevention Queens Contest, the association has embraced the necessity for fire prevention and serves to put the worth of the volunteer fire service before the public.
