The Highland Hose Co. No. 1 Ladies Auxiliary, Inc. are dedicated and committed to our fund raisers and community projects.
We currently hold two fund raisers per calendar year – a spring and fall Penny Social and the numbers of events can vary from year to year. A penny social consists of purchasing tickets to win penny items and we also have special raffle tables depending on the season and time of year they are held. We also have generous business donations that are one of our special raffles and our homemade baked good table.
Our community projects are providing service to the Highland Hose Co. No. 1 Inc. for their fire prevention open house in October. We take pride in assisting with the refreshments and sponsoring a free firematic toy raffle to encourage residents to participate in the Open House to learn more about fire safety.

We support the Hudson Fireman’s Home by collecting donations for the residents.
