Gary Lalor, Eagle Grove

(Nominated by Janice Lalor)
Robert Blue Middle School
February 24, 2011

Gary, following the example of his father, is the fire chief in Eagle Grove and has been with the fire department since the age of 16. He has a lot of responsibility, not only on calls, but everyday – seeing to it that needs are met for safety, equipment and training. When the Flag came through the first time, we were all a part of it – what a wonderful, yet very sad piece of history. I am Gary’s wife and also a member of the Eagle Grove Fire Department along with our two sons. It would be such an honor for all our department “family” and their families for Gary to put a stitch in the Flag for all.
