Another Successful Outdoor Drawing for New Franklin & Buchanan Valley

The Buchanan Valley FD & New Franklin FD hosted our annual Summer Gun and Cash Drawing. This event was again a successful fundraiser for both Volunteer Fire Departments. Several weeks of planning and preparation goes into hosting this event as well as our Fall Drawing. On behalf of both departments we want to first thank those who purchase tickets to our Outdoor Drawings. Without your continued support, the event would not exist and continue to grow each time. Secondly all the volunteers for New Franklin and Buchanan Valley who come together with an impressive about of volunteers to make this event run smoothly. I hope I speak for all and say it was a Great day to represent our organizations. And lastly our transfer crews who cover each firehouse, so public safety is not impacted while this event is going on. The winning numbers were posted lasted evening on both our pages, if you missed them click here. Our Fall Outdoor Drawing this year will be September 30, 2017.

Fall Outdoor Drawing a Huge Success

Yesterday (9/24) The Buchanan Valley FD and New Franklin FD jointly hosted another Outdoor Gun & Cash Drawing. The drawing was a huge success once again ! Ticket sales were the highest ever, the turnout out of the patrons was quite impressive, and the weather was perfect ! Both departments want to take time to thank those who continue to purchase tickets for this joint fundraiser. Your support goes along way helping volunteers to pay for new equipment and provide training. We also want to thank the membership of BVFD and NFVFD for their dedication and hard work making this event run smoothly. The winners of the drawing were posted last evening at the conclusion of the drawing.

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.
