Recognizing the rescuers

Jim Meynard, executive director of the Georgia Firefighters' Pension Fund, poses with three newly installed life-sized bronze sculptures outside the Pension Fund's headquarters on East View Parkway in Conyers. The GFPF Board of Trustees commissioned in May 2008 Hanlon Studios of Toms River, N.J., to sculpt and cast the three life-sized figures of active firefighters, honoring all firefighters of Georgia. State Insurance Commissioner John Oxendine is slated to appear at the dedication ceremony for the sculpture at 11:30 a.m. today.
