Thank you very much for all that your members did for Anton Kostiew in his last illness. The tribute to him is lovely. I knew Anton from the time he and his wife Margaret arrived at my parents' in the fall of 1962. He was like an uncle to my daughters, Barby and Cricket Stone, and a major figure in my mother, Dorothea Momsen's life. He will be missed.

Wow! Great website. Lots of great memories. When is the Clam Bake? Things I miss the most: Riding on the back of 168 with Johhny B blazing down Rte 35, Thursday night fight nights as my dad called them, Warm food after fighting those darn winter house fires. I do not miss riding my bike in a snow storm to get to the fire house. Hope all is well and keep updating this site. Good stuff! Sandy.

First time visitor to your site....what a website!!!! Professional, informative and very easy to navigate. On a personal note - it was like being home again... the pictures of the Carnivals and getting to see the faces of some old friends (and Mike) really made my day. Hello!!! to classmate "Zeke" and Johnny B., as well. The SSFD continues to be as impressive as ever, a testament to the teamwork and dedication of its membership and their families.
God bless you all! Happy 2010 Holidays - Peg Lynch

Mom (Helen) passed away on the 14th and I just got back from Maine. All the old papers and pictures got me to thinking about South Salem and how much we loved it there. Dad was so proud of his time at the Fire Department and all of his good friends. I remember a ham radio field day there on the top of the hill with Ken Keeler in 1957.
Keep up all your good work. Thanks for all you do.

Love the site! As a kid in the 50s and 50s it was always a treat to visit Daddy's home away from home, and he was so proud to be a part of SSFD for so many years. His happiest times were when he could help others in the community. Drill well and often, stay safe -- Thank you for your service!

I was feeling a bit homesick and was just browsing, and as soon as i saw the carnival pictures i was excited and my memories refreshed! my dad spent a lot of time up there, so kind of a second home. Looks great, Stay Safe and keep up the good work! P.S. used to hate the noon alarm, and now realize really how quaint it makes our home town!

Your site brings back lots of memories as a kid. My dad (Bob Lavery) was a SSFD member in the 50's and 60's. It looks like lots of pride and dedication going on, just like then.It was just a little smaller though-3 trucks and a boat!
