On June 11, 2018, during the regular monthly meeting of the Lyndon Fire Protection District board of trustees, the department’s WHAS Crusade for Children coordinator was recognized by Chief David W. Howser.  Unbeknownst to him prior to the meeting, Major Rick Baker was presented the Lyndon Fire Achievement Medal by Chief Howser.  Major Baker was presented this award for his “sustained and ever increasing support and coordination” of the fire department’s Crusade for Children efforts.  Over the past several years Rick’s emphasis on a safer and more efficient way to raise funds for the Crusade have proven to be just that.  Thanks to the contributions and support of our community the Lyndon Fire Department’s efforts resulted in a 20.7% increase over last year and raised an “On-Air” total of $35,295.25 for this years WHAS Crusade for Children!  Thank you Major Baker for all that you do to help the special kids of our community!
