|Members loaded up the apparatus early Saturday afternoon and made the short trip to Arendtsville for the annual Adams County Volunteer Emergency Services Association convention parade. Arendtsville hosted this year's convention is conjunction with their 100th anniversary. Convention activities included the business meeting and election of officers on Thursday evening, a pig roast at the South Mountain Fairgrounds on Friday evening, and a parade through the Borough of Arendtsville and post-parade festivities at the South Mountain Fairgrounds on Saturday afternoon.
Although no awards were brought home to Cashtown this year, members had a great time participating. The CCFD would like to extend its congratulations to Arendtsville on their 100th anniversary and also congratulate our neighbors on the west side of the township (Buchanan Valley) on taking home the Moul Award.

|Dual engines sitting side-by-side in the front row has been a rare sight at Cashtown since the arrival of Squad 4 in 1991. Those around at that time will remember that the last time this was the norm was when the 1963 Ford front-mount pumper was sitting where the 2001 Pierce is currently parked. If a picture from that era is located, we'll post it as a "now and then" just for fun.
Squad 4 will return later this week so it's only a short-lived return of the old days...
