March 28 - Rich Froh “Lost and Found - the Fire Truck that Wouldn't Go Away. The 1917 American LaFrance fire engine"

The historic fire engine itself will be on display onsite March 28th starting at 6:30 pm at the Mystic Congregational Church Hall at Broadway & East Main, Mystic, CT.

Historic artifacts that remain intact while many similar objects are lost forever often have amazing survival stories. The restored 1917 American LaFrance fire engine that is often seen at Mystic parades and Mystic Seaport antique vehicle events is a classic example of such an artifact with many twists and turns in its 100-year tale. The 1917 LaFrance fire engine  serial #1855 was purchased by and served the Watch Hill FD., owned by a private car museum owner located on RT. 184 in Groton, owned by the Groton Long Point Volunteer Fire Company, sold to another private owner, and donated back to the GLPVFCo. This antique fire apparatus is a local artifact that was saved because of its local history. The historic fire engine will be on display, along with artifacts from its history, prior to our March 28th meeting.
