The Sandy Hook Fire & Rescue Company Ladies Auxiliary is looking for new members. To introduce themselves to the community, and to answer questions about their work, the auxiliary will host an open house on Tuesday, November 12, at 7 pm.
After a brief business meeting, members will introduce themselves to guests and explain their role as a support group for the fire company.
The auxiliary supports firefighters in the event of large fires and other community emergencies, including respite care by means of water, snacks and meals when needed. The group does fundraising through annual Easter and Mother’s Day flower sales, and participates in firehouse events.
Auxiliary members do not need to have a relative in the fire company in order to join. Members need to be at least age 19. General membership meetings are the second Tuesday of each month at 7 pm.
The open house will be at the Sandy Hook Fire & Rescue main station, at 18-20 Riverside Road. Light refreshments will be served.
Reservations are not necessary, but additional information is available from Laurie Comerford, auxiliary president, at 203-948-4804.
