At every event there are those whose past contributions stand out. Michael Stevens the heart and soul of the Apparatus Committee was recognized for his work with Patriot Fire to rehabilitate an old friend shown here. This legendary Seagrave Engine is the pride and joy of Silver Hill. Untold dollars were invested in restoring this unit and many thanks were showered upon Richard and Steve Beavers of Patriot Fire for their marvelous work.
Mike (Stevens) even got the family involved in shuttling the Seagrave to Patriot Fire the vendor on multiple occasions. The other Mike (Alfieri) put in road duty to see the project through. Jeff Kramer provided great video and pictures (shown here) to capture the glory of the refurbishment process. The craftsmanship is superb and a testament to the Beaver’s family dedication to near perfect work. The Silver Hill faithful were very appreciative of the care that went into the restoration. Michael Stevens is very dedicated to lending his expertise to the company and has run an excellent committee. Thank Mike for all that you do.
