Holloway Fire Station dedicated to Nester

 

 

HOLLOWAY – May 26 was a special day for the Holloway Volunteer Fire Department, which aptly designated its station in honor of its most dedicated member.

Firefighters held a ceremony that Saturday to dedicate Holloway Fire Station 26 to longtime Assistant Chief John G. Nester, pictured above, who actively served the department for more than 60 years. Nearly 50 family, friends and community members joined at the station as a 4-foot-by-8-foot sign was unveiled bearing the inscription, “Holloway Volunteer Fire Department: 1950–John G. Nester Fire Station–2012.”

Pictured right from left, are Danny Williams, Mark “Meatball” Barto, Ralph Fritter, Chief Bill Robertson, Jack Morgan, Tom Spano, Ben Romshak, Kenny Staten and Kelli Staten.
