The South Hill Volunteer Fire Department has answered 468 calls this year, many times led by members 63 years or older. To recognize these stalwart volunteers, SHVFD Fire Chief Rosser Wells presented a special t-shirt recognizing them as the Geritol Crew. The presentation took place at the department’s Christmas Banquet Saturday night in South Hill. Pictured: Grady Waters, who is 66 years old and has answered 312 calls in 2014; James Kidd, who is 68 and has answered 400 calls; Jimmie Walker, 67, with 316 calls answered; D.T. Vaughan, 64, with 218 calls answered; and at 63 years of age, Chief Wells, 365 calls answered. These dedicated volunteers were recognized by members of the SHVFD for their many years of combined service protecting the community. For more fire department honors, see page C6. (Lisa Clary photo)
