WOODBURY – Its made a few test drives with Fire Chief Janet Morgan and Captain David Lampart behind the wheel, but the Woodbury Volunteer Fire Department’s newly-restored 1928 Seagrave fire truck will make its official public debut this Sunday at the town’s Memorial Day Parade.
The original cost approved by the Woodbury selectmen on March 26, 1928 was $6,600. That equals $96,101.79 in today’s money, which is almost the exact total cost of complete restoration for the 90-year-old fire vehicle, which was delivered back to the Woodbury Volunteer Fire Department this winter.
Restoration costs for the 1928 Seagrave fire truck were met entirely by private contributions and fund-raising, with no expenditure of public funds.
The Woodbury Memorial Day Parade will begin promptly at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 27, rain or shine. The parade route will follow Church Street to Main St. South, then head south to the Cannon Green where the annual Memorial Day ceremony will take place.
