An anniversary celebration


BOHEMIA—The Bohemia Fire Department recently celebrated 125 years serving their district. In celebration of that milestone, on Saturday, Aug. 11, the department hosted the annual Islip Town Volunteer Firemen’s Parade.  

“It was a special event shared with neighboring departments, family, friends and residents of Bohemia,” said department member Richard Gross. “Considering the weather, we had a pretty good turnout.”

Saturday morning’s heavy rainfall didn’t last, though.

“We were blessed,” said Gross, who also served as the master of ceremonies. “The forecast was not in our favor, but it turned out to be a nice evening.”
