Peter Vogell, assistant fire chief of the Castine Fire Rescue Department, was honored at the Maine State House on April 8.

Representative Ralph Chapman (D-Brooksville) presented Vogell with a legislative sentiment in recognition of his more than 50 years of public service.

Vogell, a lifelong resident of Castine, has also served over 30 years as a selectman. He joined the Castine Fire Rescue Department in 1962 and, with the exception of his time in the Navy, has been an active member since that time.
