On Saturday, March 1, members of the Danbury Township Volunteer Fire Department were honored at a banquet hosted by the Danbury Township Volunteer Fire Department Association. The event commemorated the historic July 1, 2013, merger of the Lakeside and Marblehead Volunteer Fire Departments under the umbrella of Danbury Township. In November of 2013 voters successfully passed a levy to provide additional funding for the services provided by this consolidation. Both the Association and the Township Trustees were presented with a plaque honoring the merger. The plaque contains the names of elected officials and department members in service on July 1.
