History came alive on a recent Sunday morning at the Mahopac Falls Volunteer Fire Department headquarters — the Old Timers were back. Life members traveled great distances to be with their brothers and members of their firehouse family. ‘Doc’ McCluskey traveled from Florida and Jim McGinty, Sr., made it from South Carolina, along with Tom Stasiak. Senior member Gene Gunn got a rousing welcome as he entered the hall, celebrating 68 years of service. With 40-plus old timers in attendance, the total number of years of combined service was well over1500 again. After a great breakfast, members lined up for a group photo and wished each other good health, and started off for home, promising to see each other next year.
