Round Hill Volunteer Fire Company to Host 70th Anniversary Oktoberfest Fundraiser
October 12, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm
The Round Hill Volunteer Fire Company (“RHVFC”) will be hosting an Oktoberfest themed fundraiser at the Round Hill Community Center on Friday, October 12, 2018 at 6:30pm to benefit RHVFC’s firehouse renovation. The committee chairs organizing the event are Hilary Haroche, Tia Mahaffy, Samantha Mastroberti and Katie Hynes Scott, all spouses of current officers and members.
The event is open to the Greenwich community and tickets are available for purchase online at roundhill.givesmart.com. Guests will be treated to seasonal Oktoberfest food, beer and live music. “We are hosting a fun, neighborhood block-party type event which will bring together the whole Round Hill community”, said committee co-chair Tia Mahaffy. Unique auction items, only available from the fire company such as firetruck birthday parties, and home safety inspections will help raise funds for the company’s capital campaign.
Celebrating 70 Years Serving the Backcountry & Station Renovation
Round Hill Volunteer Fire Company (“RHVFC”) was incorporated in 1948 to provide fire protection services to the estates and farms of “back country,” northwest Greenwich, CT. Since its incorporation, its members have responded to an estimated ten-thousand calls protecting life and property, all on a volunteer basis. Today, RHVFC’s members continue to serve the back country, working hand in hand with Greenwich’s full-time career firefighters, not only in the Round Hill fire district, but also throughout greater Greenwich when additional resources or apparatus are needed.
RHVFC’s existing station was originally built in the 1950’s and its most recent major renovation was more than 35 years ago. In order to address much needed upgrades and maintenance, the Town of Greenwich has committed to fund 50% of the total project costs and RHFVC will be responsible for the remaining share of costs associated with its multi-year modernization project. “Our facilities are in serious need of repair and upgrades. We believe the finished product will help attract a new generation of volunteers while giving our current membership the resources to better serve our community” said Tom Scott, Vice President of RHVFC. Architecture is being handled by Tim Peck of Shoreline Design Group, LLC and construction is expected to begin in 2019.
Join Us on October 12th!
