I started in my local VFD when I was in High School at 16. When I moved away to college I got on the VFD there, then when I settled here I joined this VFD. I leave for awhile now and then but I always come back. On a hiatus right now, moving in the summer, but I have already talked to the FD about joining. By the way # 8, personal fave.
FYI, it is spelled W-H-O-A.
