Back in mid April I got a call from San Fransisco (I recognized the area code). Apparently, it was from the Fireman’s Fund Insurance Company (FFIC). They said that they liked my photography style. They wanted to hire me to cover a grant-receiving event for the United Communities Volunteer Fire Department (UCVFD) at Romancoke. I was the first photographer on their list, so they really hoped that I could do it. I was excited and told them that it would be an honor for me to cover the event.
The grant was from Papa John’s Pizza, recommended by Glenn Jones, Vice President of Operations, also a Kent Island native. The fund will be used for audio visual equipment in a new station training center and classroom.

The big check!
In the background is the new truck in the new colors. The old color was light yellow.
After the event, everyone gets free pizza and buffalo wings. Yum!
Congratulations UCVFD! Thank you for the hospitality.
Thank you Kristin and FFIC for choosing me as the photographer for the event.
