Beacon Hose has a jam-packed slate of events planned throughout this autumn for both members and the public.
The season began, of course, with the 2015 Upper Valley CSFA Convention and Parade at the end of September.
From there, it only gets more exciting. Here’s a sample of what’s on deck over the next month. We’ll have much more information on all the events coming soon. As always, our updated events schedule is available on our calendar.
BEACON HOSE FAMILY PICNIC
Update: Thanks to everyone who came out!
Beacon Hose will host its annual department picnic for members and their families on Sunday, Sept. 27, from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. at Matthies Park. The event will be rain or shine and will include great food, drinks, fun and games for all ages.
Dessert donations will be greatly appreciated. Members who did not RSVP at the monthly meeting and would like to attend (with or without families) should contact Gretchen by Sept. 23.
