Shepherdstown Volunteer Fire Department thanks community for support
On October 26, the Shepherdstown Volunteer Fire Department sponsored our 30th Annual Apple Butter Festival.
For this year’s festival, 4,209 quarts were made. Our 30-year apple butter production total is approximately 89,000 quarts.
On November 9, we sponsored our Sixth Annual Sportsman Bash, with over 1,000 in attendance. We want to extend a thank you to the many community volunteers who assisted with both of these fund raising events. Each event had about 100 volunteers.
With our weekly bingos and other fundraisers, we spend about 60 days every year doing fundraising events, not adding in the days spent on event planning and preparation. We are very fortunate to have the many volunteers willing to help with our fund raising, and we the members of the Shepherdstown Volunteer Fire Department want to express our appreciation.
