Help Us Fight Local Hunger

no-hunger

One of every 10 local families will have difficulty providing meals for itself this holiday season. As friends and neighbors, the Lisburn Community Fire Company asks for your help with a donation of food after a successful first campaign in 2013.

Last year, you generously donated 222 pounds of non-perishable food, 35 pounds of miscellaneous items like Christmas gifts, etc., along with $285 in monetary donations. Lisburn Community Fire Company contributed an additional $300 to bring our organization’s total giginv to $585.

Hunger doesn’t take a year off, though, so the Fire Company asks you to help this year by donating non-perishable food items now at the Fire Hall. Place your donations inside the blue tubs placed under the windows of the fire station any time.

If you have questions, or would like more information, please notify us at lisburncommunityfirecoinfo@comcast.net or (717) 766-3994.

Together we will provide a memorable holiday experience for those less fortunate.

Thank you from the Officers and Members.

Truck Bays Painted

The truck bay floors in the Lisburn Community Fire Company have recently been sealed and painted by Stronghold Floors, Mechanicsburg. Check out the excellent job they did:

Although the paint appears turquoise on the pictures, it is actually green.

From Stronghold’s web site, here’s what the bays looked like before they began their work:

Thanks also go out to John Gross & Company for its generous donation of a trailer to store all items normally located in the truck bays. We couldn’t have upgraded our facility without your help. Thank you!

Thank You, Veterans

Constructed on a Ford F-550 4×4 chassis and featuring a four-door crew cab, the Mini-Pumper will sport a 500 gallon-per-minute Hale pump-and-roll pump. The truck will be able to knock down brush fires, respond to residential fires, or go wherever is needed in southern Lower Allen Township or surrounding communities.

Delivery from KME is expected by the end of December, 2014.

Annual Lisburn Turkey Dinner On Tap

It’s Turkey Time!

Make sure to arrive early on Sunday, Nov. 9 for the annual fall turkey dinner at the Lisburn Community Fire Company. The meal begins at 11 a.m., and will last until we run out of the delicious home roasted turkey.

Screen Shot 2014-10-28 at 1.07.07 PM

The meal comes with all the fixings, including stuffing and mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, corn, and all the coffee and tea you want. Homemade desserts round out the meal, with selections ranging from pumpkin to fruit pies to chocolate cakes.

One donation of $10, or $4.25 for children ages four to 10, gets you a hearty serving or two. Still hungry after clearing your plate twice? Please make an additional donation to enjoy a third helping.

So, come one, come all, but don’t come late. We’ve planned for another record-setting dinner, but we’ll certainly exhaust the turkey supply before 2 p.m.

See you on the 9th!
