Our Pictorial Past

 Pictured here is Canal Winchester’s first organized volunteer fire company made up of, from left to right: Denver Glei,  Ralph Hanna, Dip Shoemaker, Gerald Robinette, Chief Joe Root, Perky Hart, Mac Haynes, Willis Howard, Dale Fowler, Bob Sansbury, Floyd Thomas, Shorty Kemmerling, and Stanton Tenney. The fire engine in the photo is a Seagrave. According to the book, "Canal Winchester, Ohio: The Second Ninety Years," by Lillian Carroll and Frances Steube, the Canal Winchester volunteer fire company formed in 1942. "Volunteers not only signed up to fight fires, but gave money and signed notes to purchase new fire equipment," wrote Carroll and Steube.
