The coronavirus pandemic forced Maquoketa Fire and Rescue not to hold its annual banquet. However, they still presented service awards to members. Shown are, from left, Tony Hoefelmeyer, five years; Jerry Bowen, Firefighter of the Year who is retiring after more than 30 years with the department; Craig Muhlhausen, 20 years; Pete Schueller, 20 years; and Jordan Fullerton, five years.
