A dispute over the viability of a Pennsylvania fire company’s social club has prompted a lawsuit to determine if the club should reopen. Three members of the Snow Shoe Volunteer Fire Company filed suit in June to block the social club’s reopening.
The suit filed by President Thomas Moore, Fire Chief Beau Martin and Treasurer Nichole McClellan claims that the club is not in the fire company’s best interest. The club was closed in April.
The Centre Daily Times quoted from the lawsuit as saying “The Fireman’s Club in its current controlling, governing configuration freezes out firefighters and diverts the allocation of very scarce financial resources to non-fire company services.”
