Celebrate 100 Years with Hillsdale Fire Company

To Our Friends and Neighbors,

The Hillsdale Fire Company No. 1, cordially invites you to join us for our centennial celebration, to be held on Saturday, September 8 in the Pavilion at the firehouse on Route 22.  The event, 2-5 pm will feature FREE hamburgers/cheeseburgers, hot dogs, soda, and water, served by the members of the Fire Company.  Meet and greet the members, check out the trucks and equipment, see what we have been up to, and see where we are heading.

This is our way of saying “Thank You” for your support over the years.

Along with announcing our 100 year celebration, this letter provides an opportunity to bring the community up to date on the services provided this year by our volunteers. In the first 8 months of 2018 they have:

  • Answered 62 alarms, which include structure fires, accidents, brush fires, med flight assists and calls involving weather related calls.
  • Logged over 984 man hours in department training and drill time to stay current with mandatory firefighting standards.
  • Welcomed 2 new active members.
  • Maintained and updated our plan for an Emergency Shelter, should the community require this service.
  • Hosted the Palm Sunday Brunch and the Centennial Meet & Greet. These two fundraisers are a significant part of the operating budget for the year and we thank the community for their support.

If you can’t join us on September 8, please help us continue to provide our community with the best service possible. We will put your tax deductible donation to good use. Your support is much needed and greatly appreciated.   Attach this form to your contribution.

Sincerely,

Richard Briggs

Annual Ball Chairman
