Meet McWane: Reeve Ammerman, Horseheads, NY

Reeve Ammerman isn’t exactly a McWane team member, but his volunteer work has definitely earned him some recognition.

85-year-old Ammerman is from Village of Horseheads, a small village in the town of Horseheads, New York. Ammerman has painted and revamped 105 fire hydrants all over the village since July of 2013 and plans to paint all 320 of them before he calls it quits. And guess where most, if not all, of the hydrants are from – that’s right, Kennedy Valve Company in Elmira, New York!

Although Ammerman doesn’t do his good deeds for the accolades, he has received recognition and two replica fire hydrants from officials at Kennedy Valve along with receiving the Horseheads Kiwanis Good Guy award.

We are grateful that our Kennedy Valve hydrants are safe features in the communities that they are located, but we are even more grateful for people like Reeve. Thank you, Reeve, for helping to keep our fire hydrants looking up to par and for making a difference in your community!
