PHOTOS: Photos were sent of what looked like a happening at Hook & Ladder 8 last week and it sure was: the good folks at the Buffalo Ghostbusters dedicated a replacement Ghostbusters sign to the firehouse, since the nearly 40-year-old original was showing its wear and had lost a finger. But there’s more, with a pandemic silver lining bonus:
During the past year, with everything closed down, the Buffalo Ghostbusters — one of about 200 fan franchises across the country — were trying to stay active with their ectoplasmic activities while staying distant. So first they cooked up the idea of participating in kids birthday parades that became a thing in the suburbs in COVID — after all they just happen to have a few cool cars with flashing lights and costumed drivers. And then one of the 13 members got to thinking: why not launch a GoFundMe to replace the sign at N. Moore firehouse that they knew was in disrepair?
