This Sunday, April 25, exactly 2 years after the Pocomoke City Volunteer Fire Company dedicated their new firehouse, the fire company is dedicating their adjacent Community Center at 1410 Market Street.

An Open House will be held from 2:00 PM until 5:00 PM and will feature tours of the magnificent new Community Center banquet facility.

At 3:00 PM, a cornerstone ceremony will be held. The time capsule from the Fifth Street firehouse cornerstone dedicated in 1939 will be opened by the senior members of the fire company. The contents of the time capsule will be revealed and should prove interesting. A time capsule containing modern materials will then be set in the new cornerstone.

Following the cornerstone ceremony, the Pocomoke City Volunteer Fire Companys new tanker truck will be dedicated and placed in service. The purchase of the tanker was made possible through a Homeland Security grant to the fire service.

Another true asset to Pocomoke!
