The members of Local 290 would like to extend our appreciation to R.S. Marble and Granite of Port Reading for their generous donation of granite for the island and countertops for the newly renovated kitchen at Port Reading Fire Station 2. The members of Local 290 worked together to renovate the kitchen by removing old outdated appliances and installing commercial cookware that was donated by Buckeye Pipeline in Port Reading. The end result is a fully functioning kitchen that will serve the members for years to come.
