FTD Salutes Our First Responders

Each year and for every Festival, the First Town Days Festival Committee selects something or someone special to our community, Tuscora Park, or the festival itself to honor and recognize through our commemorative plate. The tradition continues and we believe this year’s selection is so well deserved as we recognize the men and women of our community who serve us every day of the year protecting lives, our safety, and our property as First Responders.

Through this plate and a number of our events this year, we will seek to honor these individuals who are always there for us in the most critical of times and situations often risking their own lives to protect us. We thank our Sheriff’s Department, the New Philadelphia Police, the New Philadelphia Fire Department, and our Ambulance and EMT services for their dedication.

These organizations are represented on our plate by Tuscarawas County Sheriff Orvis Campbell, Police Chief Michael Goodwin, Fire Chief Jim Parrish, and Mr. Bob Smith of Smith Ambulance.

These gentlemen will be honored representing their departments as Parade Marshals for the 2019 First Town Days Festival. They will lead our 2019 First Town Days Grand Parade on Friday evening July 5th beginning at 6:30 p.m.

We hope you will join us in thanking them and all of those under their commands for giving so much of themselves for us. We also hope you will join us for our opening ceremonies and annual plate auction on Thursday July 4th at 6 p.m. at the Al Maloney Midway Stage to show support for our First Responders and to kick off our plate sale supporting the First Town Days Scholarships and Park Projects.

About the Artist…

Jim Celuch is well known in Tuscarawas County and beyond for his excellent work and artistry as a photographer. Jim is a longtime resident of New Philadelphia and has strong ties to the community and to First Town Days having designed several of our plates over the years including many of our most popular designs. He is also the owner of Celuch Creative Imaging in New Philadelphia specializing in commercial and advertising photography as well as graphic design and website development. As the First Town Days Festival Committee, we could not be more pleased and appreciative of the wonderful design that Jim has blessed us with for this year’s First Responders Commemorative Plate.
