The North Fork Ambulance Association invites all its past volunteers and crew members to attend a 50th anniversary celebration on June 30 at Memorial Hall in Hotchkiss. The celebration will include a presentation on the organization's transition from a member-based nonprofit organization to a special taxing district.
Delta County commissioner Don Suppes will emcee the event. Presentations will be given on both the North Fork Ambulance Auxiliary and the Health Services District and how the two organizations are moving forward.
Since it formed in 1969 the organization has trained hundreds of volunteers over the years, said former executive director Kathy Steckel. "We'd like to honor the past crew members. If you have volunteered for North Fork Ambulance at any point in the past 50 years, please come."
