The Howard County Executive (Calvin Ball) will host a press conference to discuss COVID-19 testing at the Savage Volunteer Fire Department on Monday, July 6th at 11 a.m. I am happy to see this announcement and looking forward to that location being a location that has drive thru testing without the need for an appointment.
My thoughts this morning are about an article I wrote almost a year ago (July 29, 2019) “Is It Time For The Savage Volunteer Fire Company To Change Their Logo?” This will be a location for COVID-19 testing in Howard County. The photo above will be the logo that those visiting that location will see. Is it appropriate in the world we live in today?
Here is a look at the website as of this morning:
When professional organizations like the Washington Redskins are going through a review of their team name and logo…is it time that Howard County do the same with the name and logo of the Savage Volunteer Fire Department?
I am not saying or tell you the reader that they should or should not…just asking the question…the same question I asked almost a year ago. Is the logo and name of that volunteer fire department appropriate today in our county?
I might attend the press conference on Monday (depending on my work schedule that day) and maybe get some photos and ask this question.
As this is a question that was asked of me recently…I am curious…what do you think? Let me know in the comments.
