It was a celebration five years in the making as the Bay de Grave Regional Fire Department burned documents related to its paid-off mortgage for the fire hall and other firefighting equipment. Its share of the mortgage was approximately $120,000. Shown here, from the left, is Coun. Patrick Mackey (North River), Clarke’s Beach Mayor Betty Moore, Coun. Kevin Connolly (Cupids), Coun. Dwight Snow (Cupids) and, crouched down lighting the paper, Bay de Grave Fire Chief Jeremy ‘Jake’ Hall.
