Flanders Fire Department commemorated its 65th anniversary with a parade and party Saturday afternoon.

Dozens of fire departments from as far away as New Jersey joined in the celebratory parade, which made its way up Flanders Road from Longneck Boulevard to the Big Duck Ranch.

Two longtime members of the Flanders Fire Department were honored at the parade. Michael DeNicolo, who has 65 years with the department, and David Fox, who has been with the department for 48 years, both acted as Grand Marshals.
