Merchant Donates Firehouse Flag


Brian Crandall is a retired Sandusky Firefighter. He and his wife Jill own Silly Goose Unique Gifts, 657 Main Street, Vermilion. Crandall donated an American flag to the City and asked that it fly above the new Vermilion Fire Department Firehouse 1 during its dedication in January 2021.

Crandall presented the flag to Mayor Forthofer Friday. Chief Stempowski conveyed his appreciation on behalf of the VFD.

"Thank you Mr. Crandall. Once a firefighter, always a firefighter," stated Mayor Forthofer.
