MCAFD: Spring Fire School, Golf Tournament & Auction

You need Flash Player in order to view this.
   This week, I have spent much time helping our friends & neighbors at Meadowood.  For those of you who may not be from our area or have not read my previous blogs, Meadowood is a volunteer based fire department and training center for our region of Southern New Hampshire.  Recently, the fire fighters have reopened the station with a stronger collaboration with the town of Fitzwilliam & there have been other organizational changes too.
 
Meadowood Map   MCAFD has two major fundraisers each year.  One is an annual Golf Tournament at Bretwood. I just completed a mailing to last year’s hole sponsors & I am hoping for some more individuals & businesses in our community to join.  It is $125 for sponsorships.  They are also seeking additional gifts for prizes & raffle items.  This year’s tournament is on Saturday, June 9. The most important help I am asking for this event is to recruit more players. At $100 a player, $400 per team (and some businesses will match donations, so that could be cut in half), this is a great value for some fun in the sun, with food & the opportunity to win great prizes!
    On Saturday, August 18 is their annual auction at Meadowood.  Currently we are looking for donations from businesses & individuals to auction. Please remember that Meadowood is a 501(c)3 & donations are tax deductible. 
   I would like to thank Kellie Williams from Everlasting Invites from Troy for volunteering to work with the organization to help design flyers for both events.  We hope that the event will be available soon on Facebook for people to RSVP; we have just created Meadowood County Area Fire Department as a Cause on Facebook, too.
 
    On weeks like this when the earth is dry & conditions for fires are dangerous, we especially appreciate the attentiveness of our neighborhood departments.  Let’s make sure we support them at all times.  If you cannot donate an item or cash, perhaps there are things you can do as a volunteer to help out?  The department is currently looking for somebody to help with their website & social media, & always need help with property projects.

   Personally, I would like to see a grander fundraising schedule put into place to allow the department to do the necessary repairs to the assembly hall to make it accessible by people with disabilities, allowing us to market & host more events locally.  Local carpenters, builders, etc. please feel free to offer your services, or at least give us a quote for what you would charge.  With its beautiful waterfront location, this venue is ideal for birthday parties, graduations, holidays, anniversary parties, business functions & more. 
forestfires    Additionally, I have created the upcoming class catalogue for Fitzwilliam fire courses, both at Meadowood & the Fitzwilliam Fire Department.  Along with many standard classes to be taught during the third weekend of May, there will be additional Wildland Firefighting, Incident Command Structure Courses for officers and a summer long basic firefighting course for people interested in beginning their firefighting training. It is among the most serious & noble of extra-curricular activities, & I support whole-heartedly many friends in departments around the country.
 
   If anybody has any questions, would like to volunteer, sponsor an event or take a course, please don’t hesitate to contact me.  Although I am just a volunteer myself, there are weeks when I spend dozens of hours & have multiple meetings with members, & I could definitely point you in theright direction.  We are always open to new ideas, too, like the possibility of having sponsorships for the fireschool.  Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated!  Deadlines are quickly approaching…
