Ladies Auxiliary

21- May-2015

   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:
