Wawa Firefighter Recognized for 20 Years Service

A Wawa firefighter was honoured for longtime service at this week's Council meeting.

Wawa Volunteer Fire Department Captain Craig Spooner was presented with a 20 Year Exemplary Service Medal by Fire Chief Kevin Sabourin, while Mayor Ron Rody presented Spooner with a related certificate.

Both Rody and Sabourin lauded Spooner for his dedication - with Rody noting Spooner had to miss several seasons of golf due to an injury sustained as a firefighter - while Spooner joked that the twenty years had "gone by quick" before thanking the mayor and chief for their support, and particularly the other firefighters for the support, friendship, and camaraderie, especially for having his back at the many calls over the years, adding he has their back, as well.
