Honoring Lex Park Rescue Squad Members

Rescue Squad

The Lexington Park Volunteer Rescue Squad presented awards to its members at a ceremony last month.

“Normally we have our Installation of Officers banquet to honor the past years hard work by all of our members. We ‘Install’ our new officers and take time to recognize members that excelled this last year,” LPVRS President Mark Miller said in a news release. “Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 State of Emergency we could not hold our normal Installation. So on Tuesday 21 July, we gathered the members receiving awards at our station so we could present the Fiscal Year (FY) 2020 awards.”

The group followed social distancing recommendation and wore face masks.

The ceremony provided LPVRS the opportunity to thank its FY2020 officers and swear in the FY2021 officers.
