Past and present firefighters, township and county officials, and Boardman residents of all ages turned out for the Open House celebrating Boardman’s new Main Fire Station on May 29.

Among those addressing the crowd were Township Trustee Brad Calhoun, Fire Chief Mark Pitzer and retired Fire Chief Jim Dorman, who gave a history of the Main Fire Station on Rte. 224 that the new station will be replacing.

Following a ceremonial ribbon cutting, attendees were treated to food provided by Boardman restaurants and had the opportunity to tour the new facility.
