The Greensboro Firefighters Historical Society will hold a memorial service for the city's firefighters who have died. The service is set for 2 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 22, at Green Hill Cemetery, 901 Wharton St., Greensboro. In case of rain, the ceremony will be postponed to Oct. 29. Speakers will include Mayor Nancy Vaughan, Fire Chief Jim Robinson, Fire Capt. Dave Coker (president of IAFF Greensboro Firefighters Union Local 947) and Ann Stringfield of the Friends of Green Hill Cemetery. The memorial service was held for years in Greensboro, but fell by the wayside in 1969. The Greensboro Firefighters Historical Society revived it last year.
