At the upcoming Township Board meeting on Feb. 27, the Board and Peninsula Fire Department will recognize former Fire Chiefs Rich VanderMey and Randy Rittenhouse.

The Fire Department is asking residents and both past and current firefighters to attend and show their support for these two individuals who were very dedicated to the Fire Department and Old Mission Peninsula community. Stop by and thank them for their combined 50 years of service.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever.
