2013 Centennial Historic Anniversary For The Lombard Fire Department
On January 3rd, the Lombard Fire Department begins a year-long celebration for 100 years of service to the Lombard community in DuPage County, Illinois during 2013.
During the month of January 2013, the contents of a time capsule, buried in front of the Lombard Fire Station No.1, twenty-five (25) years ago, will be disclosed. The Lombard Fire Department time capsule was unearthed on October 25, 2012 by the staff who dug up the historic log during the unseasonably warm weather, instead of dealing with the frozen ground in January 2013.
After unveiling the historic contents of the 25-year-old time capsule, the Lombard Fire Department will hide a new time capsule in a wall of the training room at Fire Station No.1. This event kicks off the annual centennial celebration and commemorates the actual date when the first meeting of the Fire Department took place in the Village of Lombard.
The 2013 Village of Lombard vehicle stickers will display the Fire Department anniversary badge, bearing the dates 1913-2013, commemorating the centennial of the fire department public service.
A horse-drawn wagon (to replicate the antique fire truck) will represent the Centennial in the Lilac Parade.
