The Potomac Heights Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad, Inc. regrets to announce the passing of Active Life Member Charles “Mike” Wills. Mike passed away this morning unexpectedly at his home. Mike joined our station on February 14th, 1980 at the age of 15. Including this year, Mike has had 39 years of active service.

During his 39 years of service, Mike also served with the La Plata Volunteer Fire Department and the Nanjemoy Volunteer Fire Department. Mike was also the current Director of Fire and Emergency Services at Maryland International Raceway where he has been employed for the past 29 years. Once the family has finalized his arrangements, they will be released through us.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
