The Palermo Volunteer Fire Department (VFD) will be holding a fundraiser on Sunday, August 22, from noon – 4 p.m., in the Branch Mills Village field opposite the old Dowe General Store (2 N. Palermo Rd). You invited to join in fellowship and see old friends, welcome new residents, celebrate the community, and raise important funds.
The VFD will be grilling local burgers and hot dogs, from Haskell & Daughter Beef, with veggies and sides from Wild Miller Farm. Tickets are $10 ($12 on the day of the event) and available at the Palermo Town Office, Community Library and Tobey’s Grocery. Volunteers who would like to assist or participate in the event should contact Will Armstrong (email@example.com or 993-5016).
The picnic will feature a controlled burn and the return of the VFD’s Engine No. 4! They will host Palermo authors Gary Dyer (Apple Pie and Sharp Cheese) and Jeanette Scates (the upcoming There Wasn’t Always Peace in the Valley). The VFD is delighted to have support from other Palermo organizations, including the Branch Mills Grange, the Malcolm Glidden American Legion Post #163 and Auxiliary, the Palermo Community Library, and more.
They will have metal folding chair seating and some lawn games on hand, but, you are invited to bring your own of each.
Disabled parking is available on-site and village parking is nearby.
