2010 Social

The grills were fired up for Merion Fire Companies annual social which is open to the other fire companies in Lower Merion Township. The event allows the members from the other companies a chance to see old friends and enjoy the spread that the Active Members Club provided. The Active Members Club held a 50/50, raffled off door prizes and the big draw was the raffle for three gourmet bbq meat baskets. A special thank you goes out to Chief Tom Hayden, Active Members Club V.P. Mark Stillwagon and F.F. Glenn Montgomery for all of their hard work leading up to this event.
