Saturday Night was our Annual Appreciation Banquet.  This is the night when  our Volunteers and Guests can reflect on the previous year and discuss goals for the current year.  Even with the snow coming down over 100 people attended the Banquet.   Several awards were given out with the big awards as follows:

Outstanding Member of the Year = Ben Baldwin

Firefighter of the Year= Bret McDannell

Junior Firefighter of the Year- Trevor Diaz

BVFD would like to thank all Guests for attending,  Fayetteville Fire Department for cooking the meal and Penn Township Fire Department (Cumberland 50) for covering the Apparatus for us.  One response (car fire) was handled by the transfer crew.

There have been a lot of calls and questions in regards to the Sportsmen’s Drawing that was listed for this up-coming weekend on our Event Calendars. This Event was “postponed” until a further date. We are currently working on designing a first of its kind event in the area that has taken longer to get permits for then expected. BVFD does plan on having this Awesome Event and will post it as soon as a date is picked. We will be posting our March Presidential Gun Drawing info very soon.
