Fire Department participates in Baskin Robbins® 31 cent scoop night  (April 29, 2009)

Members of the Washington Township Fire Department participated in Baskin Robbins® annual 31¢ scoop night on April 29. This is the second year that the firefighters have participated in the event.

The evening is designated by Baskin-Robbins® to help honor America’s firefighters with a $100,000 donation to the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) National Junior Firefighter Program. Our local store at 62 East Mill Road reduced prices of small ice cream scoops to 31 cents. Patrons also had an opportunity to make a donation to local fire charities and inspect local fire equipment. Hundreds turned out for the fun and ice cream.

In the program, youth learn about local fire, rescue, and emergency medical services response organizations in a safe, controlled, educational, and fun way while providing departments with an excellent recruitment mechanism.
