The Chatham Fire Department took home five trophies at the annual Columbia County Volunteer Firefighters’ Association convention and parade, hosted by the Stuyvesant Falls Fire Company. The all-volunteer department won Best Overall In County Without Auxiliary, Best Appearing in 17-22 Division, Best Appearing Color Guard Firematic, Best Musical Unit (Yankee Doodle Band) and tied for second place Best Appearing Apparatus 2016 and older. Responding to a mutual aid structure fire call from a neighboring department during the event did not prevent Chatham from earning its well-deserved trophies.
