PLYMOUTH â€”Â The last day on the job for Plymouth Fire Chief Andy Metsker was marked with a gathering of city and county officials, fellow EMS and firefighters, city and county police officers, retired firefighters, family and community members â€” all of whom he calls friends.
Metsker is leaving the fire department where he started full-time in 2002 when Larry Starr retired. He became chief nearly four years ago when George Cook stepped down.
PLYMOUTH â€” The LifePlex was in the â€śpinkâ€ť once again Saturday afternoon as the Ancilla College Charger basketball teams and the Ounce of Prevention Foundation teamed up to raise awareness and money to fight breast cancer in their annual â€śChargerâ€™s for Changeâ€ť event.
The combination has been a successful one for both parties and Saturdayâ€™s event was no exception as fans filled the gym to join in the festivities led by Ounce of Prevention with music provided by the LaVille High School pep band.
