In the 1880’s, virtually every aspect of an employee’s life was influenced by his employer, from livelihood to social activities to housing. The Du Pont Clubhouse was constructed in 1883 to provide social and recreational activities to unwind after a long day’s labor. The Club provided a library, auditorium, bowling alley, billiard tables, luncheon counter, exercise room, gymnasium, and tennis courts.
PAST CHIEF LARRY HURLBURT ANSWERS HIS FINAL ALARM
It is with deep sympathy that the GVFC announces the loss of the long time member of our organization. Larry Hurlburt, who joined the company in 1974, passed away peacefully on Saturday, August 28 surrounded by family.
Larry held numerous positions in his 47 years in the fire company. Chief, Deputy Chief, EMT, President, Vice President and Secretary are just a few. His resume in the Township and the County is just as impressive, if not more so.
The men and women of the Gibbstown Volunteer Fire Company extend our thoughts to the Hurlburt family and thank them for his years of service.
