Mahwah FD Announces First 100th Anniversary Celebration

2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the Mahwah Fire Department, and yearlong celebrations will kick off with a fundraiser at Co. 1 this spring.

The Mahwah Fire Department is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and it recently announced the first of what members say will be a string of events to commemorate the historic anniversary.

According to volunteer firefighter and event organizer Tim Tedesco, the first event will be a tricky tray happening at Company 1 firehouse on Miller Road on April 25.

The event, which will include free coffee and cake all night, door prizes, and music, will help pay for improvements to the Company 1 firehouse.

“This started because we had a bunch of projects [at the fire house] that we really needed to work on,” Tedesco said.

“We have a department-wide committee working on events for our 100th anniversary, so there will be a bunch of anniversary events this year. For this event, I combined the anniversary with the need to fundraiser for projects like redoing our kitchen.”

Tickets to the fundraiser will be $7 in advance and $10 at the door.

Tedesco said he’s already gotten a bunch of donations from locals and businesses to help run the event, but is still looking for prize donations to give away at the event.

Anyone interested in donating to the event, or buying tickets, can reach out to Tedesco at ttedesco11@stac.edu or 551-265-1114.
