Founded in 1936, The Middleburg Volunteer Fire Department, which evolved over time into Middleburg Volunteer Fire and Rescue, was officially restructured last year, made part of the Loudoun County fire and rescue system, and staffed with paid professional fire and rescue personnel.
At that time the Company transferred ownership of its fire station property to the County.
Provisions of the Charter of the Fire and Rescue 501.c.3 non-profit, however, required that, upon the corporation’s dissolution, its cash assets be distributed to other local non-profit organizations.
The funds remaining in the organizations Treasury were not insignificant.
They have now been officially allocated by a committee comprising five members of the organization: Mayor Betsy Davis, Charles Gilbert, Erik Scheps, Edward “Snooks” Swain, and Charles Wallace.
