ORLEANS/NIAGARA BOCES CLASSES ADD TO LEWISTON FIRE DEPARTMENT’S NEW LOOK

Recently the Lewiston Fire Company No. 1 completed a $1.8 million dollar renovation which included increasing the size of the fire station and remodeling the existing structure.  Fire Company Director Barry Beebe felt it was time to also make lettering, address numbers and a company logo for the front of the station as well.  “Last year while watching a bad Sabres game, I started sketching out what I thought the new logo should look like and since I have a background in design, I drew it out in CAD.  We then started thinking about who we could get to make it a reality for us.”
