ROUNDUP – Two Roundup Volunteer Firefighters were each honored with Lifetime Achievement Awards from the department over the weekend.

Kelly Gebhardt has over 40 years and served not only as Fire Chief but he also flew over Musselshell County in his own plane to spot fires and reported them back.

Leonard Wall served as  Battalion Chief for the last 20 years of his service, and when the department was unable to purchase the necessary tools for the new equipment for the jaws of life, Leonard purchased the equipment for the department out of his own pocket.  These two men served Roundup and our community well.

Thank you to both Kelly Gebhardt and Leonard Wall for their service.
