Thanks for the Ice Cream Sundays

Wednesday, July 29, 2015  Special thanks go out to Michelle King, Al King and Riley Ruments who were the 'go to' folks for the Sundays-on-Saturday last weekend. 

It was large gathering. We count cups of ice cream scooped and add in those who don't have ice cream but visit anyway. After only three such events this year, we've served over 280 guests.

There is only one more chance this summer to meet neighbors and friends at the station, get together with volunteer fire fighters, visit the station, and enjoy FREE ice cream sundaes. Mark your calendars for Saturday August 29th between 6-8PM.

Behind the scenes on 4 July

Friday, July 10, 2015   Also on July 4th, the annual parade that we sponsor went off without a hitch. Many thanks to all who assisted with the event. Special thanks to Volunteer Firefighter Donnie Embrey, who worked tirelessly behind the scenes for several months representing us to the parade committee.  Without Donnie's work, the event would not go off so well.  And of course, thanks to our day shift colleagues for their help in getting the apparatus detailed and ready to roll on the 4th -- real teamwork and it showed. We hope the community enjoyed the parade. 



PVFC Soap Box Derby races on 4 July

Friday, July 10, 2015   On July 4, our Soapbox Derby team raced in the annual event and took 4th place -- missing third by one second!  Drivers Philip Callihan and Maddy Zimmerman, (daughter of member Ed Zimmerman), did the driving for Car 602, with the new FOP car entry driven by Andrea Walter's son Aiden.  Philip also drove the Purcellville PD car to a win in a heat just to show the Folks in Blue that we're aiming to claim the 1st place trophy soon!  Volunteer Fireman John Carney coordinated all this and deserves our thanks for his efforts.  Great job everybody. Attached are four action photos.
