Saturday, October 21st, Limerick Fire Company held a Building Dedication and Housing Ceremony. It was a great warm, sunny day for the several hundred people in attendance for the ceremony. The ceremony started at 11:00 am with Greg Breyer, Limerick Township Fire Marshal serving as master of ceremony. He welcomed those in attendance. Reverend Paul Brandt, of St. Teresa of Calcutta Church gave the invocation which was followed by the flag raising presented by the Protective Service Program at the Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center. During the flag raising, Lisa Rawus, a Limerick Township resident, sang an impressive rendition of the National Anthem. Limerick Fire Company Chaplain Will Clemens read the Fireman's Prayer, followed by congratulatory comments from Representative Tom Quigley, Senator John Rafferty and Limerick Township Board Chairperson Kara Shuler. Fire Company President Tom Walters introduced the Administrative officers and Board of Directors to the crowd, followed by Chief Ken Shuler presenting the Limerick Fire Company Line Officers and Officers from visiting volunteer fire companies. Building committee Chairperson Pat Fota introduced the members of the building committee and provided a presentation to Jerry Gorski from Gorski Construction who constructed the new fire station. Pastor Kendall Harris, of Limerick Chapel, read a blessing for the members and new building. The members of Limerick Fire Company then lined the front of the station to partake in the Hose Uncoupling ceremony.
