Chief Jim Trzaski’s New Year’s Message for 2017

We hope everyone is off to a terrific start in 2017. Beacon Hose Chief Jim Trzaski recently shared a few words with our members to look back at 2016 and look forward to this year.

Beacon Hose’s Annual Christmas Tree Sale Continues

Update: Thanks for your support! Merry Christmas!

The annual tradition that is Beacon Hose helping our neighbors celebrate Christmas is returning once again to the firehouse with the start of our Christmas tree sales!

The sale will begin this year with a special Black Friday sale for those looking to get a head start on the Christmas season. We’ll continue Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 26-27) and the two weekends after that (Dec. 3-4, Dec. 10-11) until supplies run out. We’ll be at the firehouse each day of the sale from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.

The fresh-cut trees cost $45 each, and free delivery is available to all Beacon FallsĀ residents. We’ll also custom trim any tree to specifications. Those who would like to buy a Christmas tree without leaving their own home can also call the firehouse at (203) 729-1470 during any of the sale hours.
