On Sunday March 12, 2023, SSVFD Life Member Connie Brown was posthumously honored with the Greater Olney Civic Association’s Special President’s Award. Her husband, SSVFD Chief Emeritus George W. Brown Jr., who served as Chief of this Department for 21 years, longer than anyone else, received the award on her behalf. Connie served SSVFD from 1993 until her passing in 2022, both as an active member and later as a Life Member of this Department. She served as the Fire Prevention Committee Chair for many years and was an integral part in staffing the Department’s Canteen unit. Her involvement and list of accomplishments within the Department and the community is endless. SSVFD is grateful for the recognition given to Connie and the Brown family by GOCA and is proud to have called her one of our own!
