Friends and family gathered this weekend to thank Greg Bartsch for his many years of service to the Geneva Fire Department. Greg is retiring from the position of chief after 32 years.. I wonder if that's a record. Among the guests were members of the Clarks Grove Fire Department. I know what you're thinking, but I suppose when you're dealing with only volunteers, you sometimes have to look the other way and say "ok, I guess you'll do" Some of these guys could probably pick up a few extra bucks working security. Would you trespass if something dressed like that popped out from behind a building? Seriously, take time to offer Greg a word of thanks for all his work on keeping the community safe. Remember, these guys put their life on the line many times during their careers as fire fighters.
