Sunday, as a surprise late autumn snow storm caused major traffic difficulties in the area, the Singerly Fire Company of Elkton remembered those who lost their lives on the evening of December 8, 1963.  Despite the dangerous conditions on area roadways about 100 family members were able to make their way to the fire station on Newark Avenue. After the formal program, which went on as planned, the station was filled with conversation for a long time as departing families talked to each other, firefighters, and paramedics.  Thank you Singerly for hosting this part of the weekend series of events as Cecil County remembered.
