Re: Our Old Classmate was Awarded Decoration (同級生が叙勲の栄誉に浴しました)

[In English]

Our old classmate in elementary and junior high days received a decoration for his long-term contribution to fire prevention activities for our community. No less than 130 guests, including the Mayer, Diet Members, Assembly Members of Shiga Prefecture and the City, were invited to the celebration ceremony and subsequent banquet on Feb., 26 (Sun.) at one of the largest hotels in Nagahama.

The friend of ours has already retired from the position of the fire chief of our district, but he still continues working at the Emergency Medical Transport Support Association in our district, as the top administration officer.

We are very proud of him.
