A new memorial honoring firefighters was recently dedicated outside West Chester Township fire headquarters, thanks to the effort of Alden “AJ” Hammer, a Lakota East sophomore.
Hammer, a member of Boy Scout Troop 974 in West Chester, built the memorial as part of his Eagle Scout project. The memorial was dedicated to the West Chester Fire Department Aug. 15.
