WORTHINGTON — Get a bunch of retired firefighters together, and it’s a sure thing that the stories will keep coming and coming. That’s what happened last week when Rick von Holdt, chief of the Worthington Fire Department since 2001, was joined by retired WFD firefighters Bruce Duba, John Pellegrino and Chip Peters at the fire station. Considering the department is marking its 125th anniversary with a day-long celebration on Saturday, there’s plenty to look back on.
