Royersford Firefighter Receives Award From National Penn Bank
The bank initiative recognizes customers of the community office who have made contributions to the community through work and civic engagement.
Firing, a 30-year employee at Lebow Furniture, is very active in the community and serves as a volunteer firefighter – assisting with directing traffic at accident scenes – at the Humane Fire Company of Royersford and the Friendship Fire Company.
He is also a current member of the Free and Accepted Masons Lodge No. 585 of Royersford and a member of the Royersford Area Community Chest, where he volunteers his time to help raise money for local scouting programs.
“We feel it’s important to recognize and support the ongoing commitments of our customers, like Mr. Firing, who are devoted to making our community a better place to live,” said Tom Spann, manager of National Penn’s Royersford branch. “He’s very worthy of this recognition and we’re proud to have him as a customer.”
