The Lake Elmore Fire Dept. Auxiliary is in its twelfth year of existence. Our mission is to support the Elmore Fire Department in emergencies and also to be of service to our community.
Our main objective is various fund raising projects in order to provide a scholarship ($1,000) to a graduating Elmore student. For that purpose we conducted a tag sale which coincided with the Fire Department’s annual July chicken barbeque. Although our numbers are small we are proud to have been able to provide a scholarship to the following: Kirsten Lanphear, Robert Cookson, Sacha Keenan, Quentin Mckinley, Xan Rousselle, Hannah Zukswert, Reeve Chilton, Sean Handrahan, Silene DeCiucies and Ian Cohen.
We continue to support our community in several ways. For the past several years we coordinated the Town Meeting luncheon which is held at the Elmore Church. As has become customary, we assisted the Fire Department at the annual Harvest Dinner. In October we made a donation for the children’s Halloween party at the Town Hall. We made a cash donation to the local food shelf at Thanksgiving time. For our Christmas project this year we made, decorated, and sold Christmas wreaths, the proceeds of which were donated to the Lamoille County Cancer Network ($470.)
We were pleased to award our 10th annual scholarship of $1,000, the \"Kirk Jon Patch Elmore Hre Dept. Auxiliary Scholarship\" to Ian Cohen who is now attending UVM.
Once again we decorated Elmore Village at Christmas time with a lighted tree, wreaths and window lights in the Town Hall, making our town a cheery and festive town.
Throughout the year we provided support to several community members in the form of meals, gift baskets, gift certificates and other Items.
We warmly extend an invitation to anyone who would like to become a part of the Elmore Fire Dept. Auxiliary. Typically, the Auxiliary meets the second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the Elmore Fire Station.
