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

A recent visit to the KME plant shows some solid progress on the new Min-Pumper made possible by a generous donation from Lower Allen Township.

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!
