Carrollton VFD had an excellent turnout of members on the evening of 29 May 2013 in support of our four new firefighters at the graduation ceremony for Tidewater Regional Fire Academy Class 143 at the Downing-Gross building in Newport News. Congratulations to our four graduates Derek Caldwell, Andrew Fletcher, James Fox and Brandon Smith! Derek and Andrew represented Carrollton VFD, Brandon was sponsored by Hampton Fire/Rescue and James was sponsored by York County Fire & Life Safety. Assistant Chief George Rawls represented Fire Chief Joel Acree at the official ceremony. One of the highlights of the evening was when Andrew Fletcher proposed to Carrollton VFD member Blanca Ayers. It was a little hard to hear everything but we all assumed Blanca said "yes" because she took the ring! In any case, everyone had a wonderful time and we are all very proud of our new firefighters and also the newly engaged couple.
