A new year is a good time for a change, right? We made a couple of huge ones the beginning of this year - and so far, so good!
Roger put in for a station transfer - after being on Engine 10 for 11 years. He was nervous about the switch, but has enjoyed the new station, and his new crew. They even took off after work the other morning - went to breakfast and then went to see American Sniper together. He hasn't had a crew like that in a while! One of the reasons he was wanting a change - the station he was at was not very busy, so he moved to one that typically had more calls. Turns out - it's him! The station he left has had more calls than his new one since he moved!
Riley also made quite a change this year - after 9 years with the same troop, he sadly decided to move Boy Scout Troops. He was wanting a change, so we checked around and visited a new troop - he really liked them, so we visited once more and he decided that's where he wants to be - so, I filled out paperwork and got him switched the week. He is pretty excited about it. The new troop is doing a camp in the first weekend in February and he is excited about that - along with participating in Scout Sunday.
So, the guys around here have made some major changes and they both seem to be settling in with the new just fine. Wonder what else is in store for us for changes this year?
