Remington fund aids fire departments

Local fire departments are once again the beneficiaries of one of the area’s leading philanthropists.

Earlier this month, representatives of 12 area fire departments were each granted $3,000 in funds by the Elwyn Remington Foundation.

“We are very appreciative and thank the foundation for its continued support,” said Neal Wozniak who serves as president of the Langlade County Fire Chiefs Association.

Prior to his death in April, 2010, Elwyn “Al” Remington established the foundation and over its term the charitable organization, now headed by longtime friend Jeanne Lucht, has distributed hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships as well as assisting in assortment of community projects and the local aquatic center.
