  • We also need volunteers!!!  Because the Rotary Club is donating a part of the proceeds to the Local 2141 members we would like to give back by having some of our members volunteer at the event.  They are looking for volunteers to help with showing folks around Fire Department Apparatus, helping at the Red Cross First Aid tent, checking attendees in, etc.  Volunteers will also be able to feast on the crabs, food, and drink for free.

  • As of right now no on duty crews will be attending the event because they are serving alcohol.  So we need volunteers to attend off duty.  The Alexandria West Rotary Club are big Fire Department supporters and very influential in the community.  It will be important to have a big Fire Department presence at the event.
