Honoring 35 years of exceptional community service

"For the past 35 years, Gerald Metzger has been a staple on the Whatcom County Fire District 7 (WCFD7) Commission. Today, he attended his last Fire District 7 Commissioners Meeting after deciding not to seek reelection this year...

Metzger attended Ferndale High School and received an honorary diploma in 2003. He did not graduate with his class since he was serving in the south Pacific at the time after being drafted into World War II. He received the Bronze Star and an Army of Occupation Medal as a result of his service. Metzger spent many years in construction and refinery work in addition to serving on the Fire District Commission. Eric Grant was elected in the recent General Election to replace Metzger. Grant will be sworn in during the next Commissioners Meeting in January 2018." ( from the Discover Ferndale website)
