The Swarthmore Fire Company will dedicate a new Canadian maple tree and plaque in honor of Fire Chief James J. Dunn during the ribbon-cutting ceremony for Central Park on Monday, July 4. James Dunn, who was chief for 25 years, died suddenly in 1979. The fire company planted a tree with a stone marker in his memory, but the tree had to be uprooted for the construction of Central Park. The Dunns will be well-represented, with over 50 family members and friends attending the ceremony.
