Definitely gonna miss the old station 11, I remember as a kid being around there when my dad ran, my brother joined, then when I joined. Glad I got to spend time there and the old station 18.

I will miss that old station. I spent a lot of my teenage years there . It was a great group of mentors and roll models .

Wow! I ran calls out of the old station in the 80’s. The new station is going to be a beautiful facility.👍🚒😁

Few buildings i have spent more time in.

As part of obtaining his Eagle scout rank, Zander Eno led boy scout troop 966 in a flag retirement ceremony yesterday, in tribute to 9-11.

Part of Zander's project was to build a beautiful flag box that is now permanently located in front of the Sterling Volunteer Fire Company in Cascades. Anyone may place flags in this box that they wish to have retired.

The second part of his project was to collect as many United States flags as possible, so that he could lead his boy scout troop in a flag retirement ceremony in remembrance of all those we lost on 9-11-2001.

During yesterday's ceremony SVFC Assistant Chief Johnny Bischoff and Captain Matt Kucik of the Sterling Volunteer Rescue Squad reflected on that fateful day, and recollected what it was like to be among the first responders dispatched to the Pentagon.

In all, more than 360 United States flags were retired during yesterday's ceremony. And even though none of these scouts were alive during this tragic time, they have a better understanding of what happened that day.

These young men are our future leaders, and live everyday following the scout motto "Be Prepared"

Many of us today are remembering that day 20 years ago. And, as you’ve seen, today with our colleagues we have attended a number of 9-11 ceremonies. But today as always we are so grateful for the community support we receive. The first responders of Station 18-25 (Cascades) thank the family who just dropped off cards and treats, and wished us well—and all the families who support what we do! Thank you!
