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

Successful Gun & Cash Drawing

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yesterday was our annual Fall Gun and Cash Drawing.  This is the 2nd Outdoor Drawing that was completed in 2015 along with our friends New Franklin Volunteer Fire Company #17.  We could not have asked for better weather for this event. Both Departments would like to Thank each person that was involved with the drawing, including those who continue to support the volunteer fire service by purchasing tickets.  There was excellent turn-out of volunteers from both departments to make the event possible. A few other mentioning’s go out to the Irvin Family for allowing us to use their large field for parking and the York Springs FD #9 for sending Engine 9-1 with an awesome crew to cover “The Valley”. There were many suggestions offered after the June Drawing, and many of those were implemented at this drawing.  We are pleased to announce that both departments will again do both drawings together in 2016.  The drawings will be the first Saturday in June and the last Saturday in September.  In-closing, the Buchanan Valley FD & New Franklin FD would again like to Thank you for your continued support.
