Sundaes on Saturdays is Back!

Friday, June 12, 2015  The Purcellville Volunteer Fire company completed its 2015 Ride the Fire Truck to School event this week.  Two lucky families got to ride to their schools in one of the Company’s trucks.


Earlier this spring the Ackerman bothers, Carl and Peter, rode to Emerick Elementary where they both attend.  Most recently the Roth family had their opportunity.  Davis Roth  got his ride to Round Hill Elementary while his older sister, Charlotte, was taken to Mountain View Elementary where she is student.


Company president Brad Quin was their driver and said that this event is really very popular and lots of fun for all involved.

Raffle tickets for next year’s rides can be filled out at the station on the Sundaes on Saturday events and at the fall Open House.

Sundaes on Saturdays are the last Saturday of each month: Here are the dates:

6/27/15

8/29/15

Sundaes on Saturdays goes from 6pm to 8pm.

60 to 60 Ruck

Thursday, May 28, 2015   The Purcellville Volunteer Fire Company hosted the "60 to 60 Ruck to Remember" on Saturday, May 23 over the Memorial Day weekend.  This event is a fundraiser to support wounded veterans and is sponsored by the group ‘Ruck to Remember.’  Each hiker must pledge to raise $500 in donations all of which goes to the selected charity: this year Operation Enduring Warrior.  There were 85 hikers this year covering the 60 miles from Harper's Ferry to Section 60 at Arlington National Cemetery.  By my count the group raised over $42,000!  

Our part in this was to host them on their first of three nights by providing a place to sleep under the stars and access to restrooms.  I was pleased that we could easily accommodate this request and the event went off flawlessly – well, the hikers arrived at 9:30 PM instead of 7:30 PM, but no less enthusiastically!  The hiked in and passed under our huge American flag deployed by our Tower Ladder.
