On Friday 15-May the Bogota Fire Dept. Ladies Auxiliary hosted a cocktail mixer at the Bogota VFW. This was the first event by the newly reformed Bogota Fire Dept. Ladies Auxiliary. These are the Family and Friends of members of the Bogota Volunteer Fire Dept., to help support the Women & Men who serve to help protect the Borough of Bogota in time of emergency. First started approximately 20 years ago the wives of the Firefighter formed a this group to help with the extra requirements of a Volunteer organization. They would hold fundraising events, look after one another children, and sometime provided food & coffee after a call. The auxiliary was suspended for awhile as "Family started to grow, and older Firefighter retired, or moved away" Now with a new group of Volunteers joining the Dept. and current members families being more mature, the time to restart the Ladies Auxiliary has arrived. They hope to continue the job of supporting the Volunteers in anyway possible. One new goal is to set-up a Scholarship fund for Student of members of the Dept. They currently have 10 members lead by President Kathy Viviani and are looking to add more members in the coming weeks.
They will have monthly meeting on the 4th Wednesday of every month at the Engine #3 fire house located on West Shore Ave. in Bogota. For more information about Bogota Fire Dept. Ladies Auxiliary or to join please contact Ms. Vaviani at: firstname.lastname@example.org
