NASSAU COUNTY, NY - Because of the pandemic restrictions during 2020, the Franklin Square and Munson Explorer Post 710 of the Franklin Square and Munson Fire Department were not able to perform any of the community service activities that they usually do. However, this year members of the Post visited the Franklin Square 9/11 Memorial and placed flags at all of the 24 name markers that represent some of the Nassau County residents who lost their lives on 9/11. This was done as an act of community service. In addition, members of the Post also participated in the VFW-sponsored town Memorial Day Parade.
