What is the Ladies Auxiliary?
The Three Bridges Volunteer Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary was organized over 80 years ago to help serve the fire company and raise funds for new equipment.
One of the many duties that the Ladies Auxiliary fulfills is providing food and drinks to the fire fighters when there is a large fire. This will help keep our firefighers going for the many hours it will take to put out these fires. We also assist the fire fighters by holding many fundraisers throughout the year, such as Longaberger Basket Bingos, Roast Beef Dinners, Fish N' Chips Dinners, as well as others.
The Ladies Auxiliary is also very involved in the community. We like to hold events to help show the community that we care and to get them involved with each other. For example, we hold movie nights as well as blood drives for the local community. We also assist with the planning and execution of the 5 Mile Run, held by the Fire Company each year.
What Do I Have To Do?
Members of the Ladies Auxiliary are required to attend a reasonable number of meetings, as well as participate in a set amount of events each year. Members are also invited to run a committee for an event that they would like to hold.
Some of the benefits of being a Ladies Auxiliary member are being invited to the annual Firemen's Picnic, the Annual Installation Dinner, discounted rental of the banquet hall, coming to the holiday dinner each December, as well as many others. In addition, you know that you are helping the Firemen who help our community each and every day.
When are the meetings?
The Ladies Auxiliary meets the 3rd Wednesday of every month (excluding July and December) in the banquet hall of the Three Bridges Volunteer Fire Company Station #1, located at 467 Main Street in Three Bridges. Meetings start promptly at 7:30 PM.
