The Orland Fire Protection District will officially commemorate the Firefighter Remembrance Memorial on Saturday Sept. 14 at 8 am at the northeast corner of the OFPD Administration Building, 9790 W. 151st Street.
OFPD Engineer Ray Marquardt, whose father Lt. Raymond Marquardt passed away on Sept. 14, 2009 as a result of a line-of-duty related illness, will participate in the memorial service joining Fire Chief Ken Brucki, and members of the OFPD Board of Trustees.

The memorial was constructed by Eagle Scout Candidate Kyle LaHucik, a member of Boy Scout Troop 725 in Mokena. The project took two years to plan
