PHOTOS: The entrance to Pride Park in Taylor Mill will soon be the home to a special monument honoring Firefighters from three different volunteer departments no longer in existence: Forest Hills, Winston Park and Taylor Mill. Most of the monument is ready. The last thing to go in will be the statue. “At one time, the fire departments were all volunteer, and gradually paid members were added,” said Rita Hasler, who is the secretary for the Taylor Mill Volunteer Firefighter Association. “The Taylor Mill Volunteer Firefighter Association was formed to include members of Forest Hills, Winston Park, and Taylor Mill volunteer fire departments. Of course, now we have one fire department, and it is all paid.” The yet-unfinished memorial, which Nancy Holian of Erlanger is creating, will have a background of a brick wall, with a special granite memorial for each department of volunteers. Surrounding the memorial will be brick pavers that can be purchased and engraved for a loved one or a group.
