Last night the Jackson Fire Dept held their annual holiday dinner at the The Wildcat Inn and Tavern in Jackson. They surprised Ben English II with an award for his service to the Fire Dept and the Town of Jackson. Ben has been a member of the dept since 1977 and also serves as a Deputy Fire Warden and member of the CCFFWA. They wanted to recognize his service over the years and let him enjoy his Pulaski-plaque long before he might consider retiring (they won’t let him retire anyway). Congratulations Ben!
