Mini Pumper Taking Shape

Work is underway on the new KME Mini Pumper, with delivery expected by the end of 2014.

To be built on a Ford F-550 4×4 chassis and l 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.

KME has provided some early build photos. Check back soon for more updates.

It is with sadness that we inform you of the passing of our Deputy Chief, Gary Wevodau. Gary fought a long, hard battle with bladder cancer, never complaining and always up-beat. He even made it to Festival this month.

The Officers and Members sending their deepest sympathy to Darla and his family. Please keep them all in your thoughts and prayers also.

RIP, Chief.

Thank you to each and every volunteer who made the Lisburn Community Fire Company’s annual Olde Time Festival such a rousing success last week. From the gang in the Small Pavilion frying burgers Wednesday night to the team scrubbing pots in the Pavilion kitchen Saturday night, each and every one of you is our hero for selflessly giving of your time, talents, and energy to raise funds to keep our firefighters rolling when duty calls.

We also send a special thank you to the Lower Allen Township Pubic Works Department, especially Gary Frazer and the highway guys. They came out before Festival and swept all our blacktop areas, and returned Monday and swept again, including all the straw from the hay ride up the alley and everywhere else! Couldn’t ask for better service. Thank you!

Many thanks to local media for spotlighting the annual Lisburn Community Fire Company’s Olde Time Festival, and helping to spread our message.

The Sentinel’s Joshua Vaughn wrote an article earlier this week highlighting one of the event’s draws as well as why so many of our fabulous LCFC volunteers return every year to lend a hand:

“It’s the food that’s the real draw,” Kline said, explaining that the home-cooked food made by the fire company was his favorite part of the yearly festival.

The fire company has hosted the festival for 61 years, and it is the company’s largest fundraiser. All of the proceeds from the festival go to the Lisburn Community Fire Company.

Friend of the Fire Company Alison Dougherty wrote for PennLive/The Patriot-News how she’s always hoped to show the Festival to her mother:

When my mother visits we go here, we go there, we buy this, we consider returning that and by the time she leaves I’m wet-rag exhausted. The one place I’ve always wanted to take my mother, but her visits never seem to coincide with the event, is the Lisburn Community Fire Company’s annual Old Time Festival.

This year she’s missing it by two days – ride night is August 6, the full event is August 7-9. I know my mother would love the festival. First, there’s free gospel music. Mother, a professional musician, loves gospel. I don’t think she’d ride any of the rides, Mother is in her 70s, but I know she’d get a charge out of the nightly tractor parade.

I would tell my mother the fire company peels and cooks almost two tons of potatoes to make french fries during the event. My mother would be impressed and definitely want some of those. I’d tell her they cook mountains of chicken for soup, sandwiches and barbecue chicken. She’d want some of that, too.

While we hope Alison’s mom gets to enjoy Festival next year, you don’t have to wait. The Pavilion opens at 4 p.m., and serves well into the night. Expect the outside fry stand to begin serving shortly after 5 p.m., and entertainment by 2nd Chance Band to begin at 6 p.m.

Thursday; time for French Fries!

Join the Lisburn Community Fire Company this evening for the second night of its Olde Time Festival.

Featured this evening will be the Carroll County Ramblers, shown above at a performance in 2012. Bring a lawn chair to enjoy some bluegrass on the Fairgrounds.

The pavilion and all outside food stands open this evening. Starting at 4 p.m., queue up for a terrific homemade sit-down meal topped off by pies and cakes baked by LCFC volunteers.

Do not miss the hand cut French Fries. Given the terrific weather on tap this evening, lines will start forming early to get these tender, tasty morsels. Fries are available both inside the pavilion as well as outside beside the sausage stand.

The antique tractor parade will rumble through the Fairgrounds, while the silent auction, bingo, and book and plant sale also start tonight. Drop by the LCFC tent to pick up one of our brand new t-shirts, then visit the Lower Allen Township Fire Department stand to pick up a Gun Raffle ticket, or six.

There’s something for everyone to do, see, and eat tonight at the Olde Time Festival.

As with Wednesday, the first night of Festival, parking on the grounds is 100 percent free, and no pets are allowed.
