February 27th, 2011

On February 27th, 2011 the Violet Township Fire Department suffered a tremendous loss. Assistant Chief Doug Barr died following a sudden and unexpected illness. Following Chief Barr’s sudden passing the Violet Township Firefighters Local 3558 established the nonprofit Violet Township Firefighters Memorial Foundation. Within the Foundation, we have established the Douglas R. Barr Memorial Scholarship to memorialize the legacy left behind by Chief Barr. The $1,000.00 scholarship will be rewarded to one high school senior annually. The scholarship will be available to seniors at either Fairfield Union High, Pickerington Central or Pickerington North. The applications for the scholarship will be available at those schools sometime in April.

The Memorial Foundation is very thankful for all your support. If you would like to donate to the foundation you can click on the Donate tab.

For tax purposes, the Violet Township Firefighters Memorial Foundation is established as a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) with the Ohio Secretary of State. If you have any additional questions or concerns please contact us through email at sponsorships@vtfdmemorial.com. Thank you for your time, consideration and support of the Violet Township Firefighters Memorial Foundation.
