Seafood Feast another full house


As many of you already know, our Seafood Feast are very popular. So popular that nearly every event is sold out prior to the day of the event. Last night was no exception. Well over 500 people attended the Seafood Feast to enjoy king crab legs, steamed shrimp, fried shrimp and all “The Valley” side dishes that we prepare to accompany the seafood. We would like to thank our patrons for attending our fundraising events, and a shout out to the BVFD27 members for another job well done ! Our next Seafood Feast is scheduled for March 5th. We still have tickets available if you have never been to one. For more info visit our Seafood Feast page

Presidential Gun Drawing on March 12th

Last year, BVFD started back up our Gun Drawings to benefit our Apparatus Replacement Program.  The last 5 Gun Drawings (500 tickets) have been SELL OUTS.  Many of our “preferred buyers” have asked about doing a bigger Gun Drawing.  BVFD went to the drawing board and designed another fundraiser that others will again try to duplicate.  On March 12, BVFD is having its first “Presidential Gun Drawing”.  This Drawing has 1000 tickets.  Each ticket gets you a chance on the 20 guns on the ticket, full buffet meal, refreshments and dessert.  Tickets are only $20 presold, or $25 at the door (if any are left!).  BVFD would also like to point out that ALL guns that are on the ticket have already been purchased and are available for pick up on March 14th.  BVFD expects to have another SELL OUT, so get your tickets now.  All “preferred buyers” will be getting their tickets this week.  If you would like to purchase a ticket or help sell these great tickets, please contact Chief Spielman at 717-677-0870 or 717-677-9234.  More info will be posted as the Drawing gets closer.  Below is a copy of the ticket for your viewing.  THANK YOU
