While Red Bank celebrated the completion of its first century as a borough, Shrewsbury, too, had a centennial to make note of over the wekend. This year is the 100th anniversary of the borough’s Hose Company No. 1 volunteer firefighting squad.
A modest parade of antique and modern firefighting equipment led borough residents from Patterson Avenue to the borough hall for an afternoon of festivities Saturday. The Asbury Park Press had a piece about the history of Hose Co. No. 1 last week.
