  1. This is a great site…my brothers were on here and told me to check it out…impressive, lol….I was wondering if anyone had any other pix of my father, Marshall Schulman….I know we have some somewhere all boxed up, but I don’t want to ask my mom to start going through that. Not sure if word has spread…but I am getting married, and I would like to do something with the pictures, if there are any. Thank you guys. Hope all is well.

  2. Jessica,

    It has been a long time since I have seen you. Congratulations on the upcoming wedding. Please give your mom my regards.

  3. Jessica,
    I have found 10-12 pictures of your father with members of the fire company. There is one group shot with your father you and Justin in the group. These pictures are Joe Young’s. If you would like them get in touch with Matt Connors or myself 269-3066. Congrats on your up coming Wedding. If General Warren Em.Co.#2 can help call. Your father is our brother firefighter and always will be!

  4. My Dad Tony Gerace was a life time member of Relief Hose #3, and was awarded the gold 5o year member pin some years ago. He passed away back in ’99, and is laid to rest in the cemetery in Haverstraw. I would like to purchase a Haverstraw Fire Department T-Shirt if they are available for sale.Thank You
