The Friday evening event featured food prepared and donated by Verace Restaurant in Shelton as well as raffle items. It raised funds for the fire company while enabling the public to learn more about the all-volunteer department.

“We do this for the community,” said firefighter Al Pereira.

“We came to help the department,” said Barbara Morrison, who was joined by friends Maureen Dishian, Barbara Murzin and Marilyn Steele.
