Come Join the Haddam Volunteer Fire Company Auxiliary!

By Betty Cernan, HVFC Auxiliary

(September 12, 2022) —Have you been thinking about joining a Town Civic Organization? But have you been unsure which one would fit your needs and desires? The Haddam Volunteer Fire Company Auxiliary would love to see you at our next meeting – to join or to attend as a guest. Members will be meeting at the new firehouse on September 26, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. to start their new year.
HVFC Auxiliary Vendor Fair

The Auxiliary was established in 1966 with the main purpose of aiding our volunteer firefighters. Members provide refreshments during major fires and they give funds periodically to the fire department to purchase items related to firefighting.  Members hold four major fundraisers each year: Easter Flower Sale, Memorial Day Clam Chowder, a Military Whist Card Party in the fall, and a Holiday Vendor Fair in November. Members also help the firefighters wrap Santa’s gifts and then help out at the town-wide Christmas Party held at the firehouse, with Santa giving out items.

The Auxiliary has donated money to the Haddam Fuel Bank, the Veterans Museum, Project Graduation, and several other important town projects and programs. A scholarship is given out on an annual basis to a deserving senior who is either a Junior Firefighter or a son or daughter of a Firefighter or Auxiliary Member.

Because of Covid issues, we had to cancel our fundraisers and we held several of our meetings on Zoom. We are now planning our full schedule of fundraisers and we need you to help us out!  You will find fulfillment because you know that you are helping a group of dedicated town firefighters as well as being active in our small community of Haddam.

Town residents 18 years or older are welcome to join. Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of the month, from September to June, except in January, at 7:00 p.m. at the new firehouse.  Come join us at our next meeting, which is September 26th.
