The rift between Mohnton‘s fire crew and the social club that oversees it was years in the making.
But the catalyst, both sides agree, was a dispute over the Friendship Fire Company No. 2 of Mohnton’s stand selling waffles and ice cream at Gov. Mifflin Community Days.
The fire crew and social club clashed over where fundraising proceeds should go and who should be allowed to volunteer at the stand. Simmering tensions between the two factions boiled over, leading to the first of back-to-back suspensions of Fire Chief Allen Detwiler.
Now Detwiler and his volunteer engine crew are asking borough government to separate the department and social club.
