Last night crews loaded up and headed to Hershey Fire Company for some training using the maze they built. A few members from Hershey also joined us for the training. The maze not only builds teamwork between you and your partner but also teaches us how to get around tight and confined spaces in the event we would encounter them on an actual call. A good time was had by all and thanks again to Hershey Fire Company for letting us use the maze for the evening. ... See moreSee less

The 2019 event is Sunday, January 27, 2019 (ALL DAY) at Hoss's Restaurant in Hummelstown. This has been a very successful event for many years. This is a great opportunity to meet up with friends to have a good meal with all you can eat. I have attached the the official pass letter for you to present to your waiter. Only one authorization is needed per table or group. NOTE: You can also use the Hoss's clipping out of the township book or the original card's. You can pick up your authorization papers at the East Hanover Twp Building, GVFC Fire Station upper vestibule, Grantville Post Office or print the attachment to this email. Hoss's are very strict on handing out invitations on Hoss's property and will disqualify our organization.
The Grantville VFC appreciates your support in our many fund raisers.
