SOUTH FIRE DISTRICT IAFF LOCAL 3918 UNION TO PRESENT CHECK TO MIDDLESEX CANCER CENTER
On November 22, 2011, members of the International Association of Firefighters, Local 3918 (Middletown’s South District firefighters) will present a check to the Middlesex Hospital Cancer Center in the amount of $600. The ceremony will be held at 10:30 a.m. in the Atrium at the Cancer Center, located at 540 Saybrook Road in Middletown.
The money was raised at South District’s Open House, which was held in October and drew close to a thousand local residents. Union members and their families staffed the food booth, the proceeds of which went to the Cancer Center. The union would like to thank Jeff Harvey, who donated his time and equipment to make french fries; Meadow Meat, who donated the hot dogs; Friehoffer’s Bakery, which donated rolls; as well as Fire Marshall Steve Kroll and South District Commissioner Bill Gregorio for their contributions. Thanks also to the children, spouses and friends of South District’s firefighters, who volunteered at the event.
The open house gives residents and visitors the chance to see the firehouse, learn about fire prevention and safety and generally have fun.
