Southern Cove Fire Co. Hosts Dinner to Help Friendship Pay for Boiler
April 22, 2021
An already difficult year for fundraisers due to the COVID-19 pandemic got worse for the Friendship Volunteer Fire Company when the boiler system that heats the building and water went down, forcing the cancellation of the monthly dinners, costing the fire company nearly $3,000 a month in revenue.
Shaina Musselman, fire company president, said the fire hall has three boilers that heat the building and the water. Last fall the boilers began to fail and by January, they were down to one boiler.
Not wanting to put a strain on the remaining boiler, the fire company had to cancel the dinners.
