Conover, NC – The Catawba County Firefighter Memorial Service will be held at 3pm on Sunday, October 14, at Joy Baptist Church located at 4015 Herman Sipe road in Conover. Weather permitting, the service will conclude at the memorial site next door at the Catawba County Firefighter’s Museum.

This is the 18th annual service, and this year’s event will have 22 members that we will be paying tribute to on this special afternoon.

“This service has a special meaning for all who attend, but especially for the family of the deceased fire service members that we honor and remember. These men and women have given years of their lives to our county’s fire service, and it is only proper that we give their families an hour of our time in remembrance of them”, states Memorial Coordinator David Pruitt.
