The terrible fire that stuck the Southside of East Main Street on Friday May 3rd will be remembered with sadness. Four amazing buildings were lost, as you will be reading in the newspaper and witness first hand. Many lost their homes and possessions, but no one lost their lives. The dedication of our Palmyra Fire Department and the multitude of departments coming from the surrounding areas was something to behold. Each had a job to do and did it well. Our local law enforcement was on the job as well as many other village employees. Thanks to all for the great job!
