Let the Holidays begin!!!
A SAD YET HAPPY GOODBYE!

At our November meeting in Jamaica Beach, Rusty Kattner, our Treasurer and Board Member, announced that he would NOT be running for re-election as our Board Member.  Rusty has been such a major player in our Association and his leadership will be highly missed.  During his 30 + tenure with the Association, Rusty has been a full-time Fire Marshal at the Village Fire Dept., held 5 Presidential Positions in the State Fireman and Fire Marshals Association, Past President of the SFFMA,  full time Treasurer of the GCFFA, Husband, and Father.  WOW!  Now he is going to pass the baton to someone new so he can take on his new Leadership role with the Mason's.  We are so proud to have had Rusty on our team and it will take a great person to fill these shoes.  

RUSTY KATTNER......WE ALL SAY "THANK YOU" FOR YOUR AMAZING SERVICE TO THE GALVESTON COUNTY FIREFIGHTERS ASSOCIATION AS WELL AS THE FIRE SERVICE AS A WHOLE!  
Best of luck in your future endeavors!
