These words were generally the first words that Ken Donner would ask the new recruits joining the Wisner Fire Department.
According to several firemen, there was a poem or saying with these words that hung on the wall in the meeting room. Through the years, this paper was misplaced, but it struck a cord with Ken Donner. He would make it a point to ask the new volunteers this very question.
The Donner family chose these words in Ken’s memory and a memorial bench was made. The family felt that these words would serve as a memorial to Ken and remind new volunteers of the importance of their service to the community.
