By Simone Wichers-Voss
 
At the first Meridian Volunteer Fire Department meeting of 2015 last Thursday, Fire Chief Mike Walker announced his retirement after being chief for 14 years. “I have done this job for 14 years, and it is time for someone else to step up and take this position,” Walker said. “I’ve enjoyed it, but I want some more time to myself. It gets to being a full time job sometimes, with organizing training, applying for grants and such.”

Many descendants of the first Bosque County settlers showed up to exchange stories and look through old family photographs.
