What I've been up to:

Not that I expect anyone on my flist to fly in for this -- but it's taking me a lot of planning and preparation, so it helps explain why I haven't been writing fiction or posting too much lately. It's another sign of how I just can't say no ... despite my fear of public speaking.

Firefighting history will be the subject of the Noble County Historical Society’s March 19 meeting. In keeping with that theme, the gathering, which is open to the public, will be held at the Albion Fire Station.
Mark Hunter, the Albion Fire Department’s Training and Safety Officer and a 25 year veteran of the fire service, will give a photo presentation on the history of fire protection in general, and local fire history in particular. Hunter has spent the last several years researching for a planned book about the Albion Fire Department.
Hunter will also discuss funding in the fire service, as well as equipment and techniques. The Sunday, March 19 meeting will begin at 2 p.m. with a short meeting of the Historical Society, but membership in the Society is not a requirement: Everyone is invited.
While at the fire station, which is at the south end of Fire Station Drive on the east side of Albion, the public can view the fire department’s trucks and building, as well as two pieces of antique fire apparatus kept at the station. The AFD was formed in 1888, and is now housed in its fifth station.
Everyone is asked to park along the south end of the fire station property, and enter through the south door. The presentation will be held in the AFD training room, or in an area set up in the truck bay, depending on the number of people who attend.
