Ribbon cutting held for new Charlie Eberhart Fire Station

A ribbon cutting ceremony was held Dec. 6 for the new Charlie Eberhart Fire Station near the intersection of Loganville Highway (Highway 81) and Matthews School Road in Winder. The Winder Fire Department relocated its Station 2 to the new building for quicker access to the city's response areas around Highway 316 and the south side of town. The new station's address is 492 Loganville Hwy. The station is named for the late Eberhart, who served on the city council from 1991 until his death on Jan. 30, 2013. Eberhart was a member of the council's fire committee. Speakers at the ceremony included state Sen. Frank Ginn, Mayor David Maynard, councilman Travis Singley, Fire Chief Matt Whiting, and family members Pamala Eberhart, Nisha Eberhart, Kenny Eberhart, Clifford Eberhart, along with the Rev. Alfred Hazel.
