Plaque Given to Town in Burn's Memory

The late David B. Burns was honored Saturday at a service in the fire station during which his widow Judith, presented a plaque to the town.

The plaque will be placed on the exterior of the building. Burns died Aug. 23, at the age of 81.

The Rev. Don Wagner, the speaker, chose as his text John 15, vs. 112-17. The them of the text is that the disciples were told to love one another and that greater love has no man than to lay down has life for a friend. Firemen are called upon in their duties to enter burning homes despite whatever fear and uncertainty they may fell, Wagner said. They rush on to face each emergency, he added.

Attending the service were members of Burns' family, members of the fire department and two members of the Culver Town Council, Bernard Busart and John Sage.

Fire Chief Lance Overmyer presided and introduced the speaker. He also accepted the plaque on behalf of the fire department.

The plaque reads: "In Loving Memory of David B. Burns 28 Mar 1909 - 23 Aug 1990. He served with fervor and devotion. Fireman 1934 - 1940, fire Chief 1941 -- 1974, by Judith E. Burns.
