2021 FMCA ONLINE AUCTION SETUP HAS BEGUN
FMCA 2021 CONVENTION OCTOBER 14-17
The Ballot Box information according to Pat Holohan. They were used by volunteer fire departments and many other fraternal organizations when new members were being voted on by existing members. If you were a existing member you were given white & black marbles to make your vote in secret. If you were in favor of the new applicant you would drop the white ball in the ballot box. If you were against the candidate joining you dropped the black ball in. Thus came the saying you were “Black Balled” from the organization! Nothing to do with segregation that I know of. Just a simple way of casting secret votes. Pat H.
