ONE OF FOUNDING MEMBERS, BOB BAESCHLIN, VISITS KENTLAND 33

     

Thursday, July 9, 2009 Today around lunch time one of Kentland's founding members, Robert "Bob" Baeschlin stopped in for a surprise visit. Mr. Baeschlin was one of a group people who lived in the Kentland community who realized the need for a fire department. In 1951 they organized the Kentland VFD which was originally located at 2626 Kent Village Drive. Mr. Baeschlin also mortgaged his house so the department could purchase its first pumper. Mr. Baeschlin spent several hours today telling stories about the department and community. The members of Kentland VFD would like to thank Mr. Baeschlin for all that he has done over the years and for stopping by today.
