Paoli Fire Company Celebrating 100 Years + A New Fire House!
100th Anniversary & Building Dedication
Paoli Fire Company

Saturday, November 13
1 PM – 4 PM
Tomorrow’s Open House at Paoli Fire Company marks 2 milestones . . . the celebration of the fire company’s first 100 years + the dedication of their new fire house. The Paoli Fire Company is opening their doors to the community to help celebrate the dedication of their new building and their first 100 years of history!
If you like fire trucks, you don’t want to miss this opportunity. Surrounding fire companies will bring their trucks to the tomorrow’s celebration. It promises to be a special day with tours of the firehouse, food, souvenirs and plenty of fun for the entire family.
If you are interested in the history of the first 100 years of the Paoli Fire Company, George Mathias wrote the article, “The Early Years of the Paoli Fire Company” for the Winter 1978 Volume 16 Number 4 edition of the Tredyffrin Easttown Historical Society’s Quarterly.

Berwyn Fire Company’s Annual Turkey Raffle is the fire company’s largest fundraising event of the year. In past years, the event has raised as much as $10,000 and we want to make sure that 2010 is no different. The Turkey Raffle will be held on Wednesday, November 17, 7 – 9:30 PM. This annual event is a fun family evening with great door prizes and free food. There are chances to purchase for a 50/50 raffle and 65 turkeys are available for the raffle. If you are unable to attend but want to help – sponsor a turkey for $25. The turkeys will feature your name (or company) and all sponsors will be posted on the station wall the night of the event.
