Although it's a few months later than originally hoped, Antietam Fire Co. officials said Wednesday their move to Potomac Avenue in Hagerstown's North End could be completed in three to four weeks. Antietam Fire Co. President Ron Horn said some unexpected costs during the company's $400,000 renovation of the former Four Seasons RV building at 790-800 Potomac Ave. have delayed the process. “We've had to cut a lot of our construction costs out because it was just too costly to stay within budget,” Horn said.

As Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church's congregation held a rededication ceremony Sunday for its downtown Boonsboro church, which was damaged in a fire 16 months ago, the Rev. Reinold Schlak reminded the parishioners what's truly important. “It's not the building. It's what the building does. It's what the people in the building do,” said Schlak, assistant to the bishop of the Delaware-Maryland Synod and a guest speaker who gave the sermon during the rededication service. After the Chartes Cathedral in France had its sixth fire, around 1200, the community excitedly rebuilt the church, Schlak said.
