Firefighters Park and Ottawa County’s 17th Ohio Historical Marker were dedicated on Monday, September 7 in Lakeside at the corner of Walnut Avenue and Fifth Street.  The west face of the marker is a short history on the 108 years of service of the Lakeside Volunteer Fire Protective Association (LVFPA) from its founding in 1905 until 2013 when the LVFPA donated its resources and equipment to the newly-formed Danbury Township Volunteer Fire Department.   The east face of the marker describes the October 20, 1929 Lakeside fire starting at the site of the newly dedicated Firefighters Park.  Read more about the dedication ceremony here:  MarkerWOPics and view a slideshow of the ceremony:
