CHVFD Congratulates LAMSFA President Vivian Boyd
The 2017-2018 officers were elected during the 125th Annual Convention of the Maryland State Firemen’s Association, and among them was CHVFD Lifetime Member Vivian Boyd. On Tuesday, June 20, 2017, Ms. Boyd was sworn in as the new President of the Ladies Auxiliary to the Maryland State Firemen’s Association (LAMSFA).
During her remarks, President Boyd expressed her appreciation for everyone for their support and promised that her term would be one of “love.” Her goals build upon the tenants established in the constitution of the LAMSFA. “We, the members of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Maryland State Firemen’s Association, now unite as a body to promote interest, establish harmony, and cultivate a closer friendship, both social and material, among the auxiliaries to the volunteer fire companies of the State of Maryland, and assist the State Firemen’s Association.”
“It is my honor to serve as President of this Association. I will do my best to perform my duties and to represent the members. My most sincere thanks to everyone for their continued support and confidence in my ability. I look forward to my travels across our great state and to making new friends along the way,” says President Boyd.
President Boyd has served with the State Ladies Auxiliary for many years and has moved through the chairs serving in every office and will now lead the organization. Vivian is a lifetime member of our department, of our former auxiliary, Past President of the Prince George’s County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association’s Ladies Auxiliary, and member of the Kentland Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary. She also serves on the planning committee for the National Capital Region 9/11 Memorial Stair Climb hosted by the Prince George’s Fire/EMS Department.
Vivian joins the company of Mrs. Magdalene Schmidt who served as LAMSFA President from 1949-1950.
“Through hard work and dedication, Vivian has achieved her goal in becoming the President of the LAMSFA. We congratulate her in that achievement and know that she will serve that organization well,” says Capitol Heights Volunteer Fire Department President James McClelland, Sr.
We congratulate Vivian on this momentous achievement and wish her a successful term as President of the LAMSFA!
