Brunswick Stew Fund Raiser

The members and friends of James City-Bruton Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting a Brunswick Stew on March 19, 2016 at their Farmers Market across from Station #1. The sale will start at 3pm and will last until we are sold out(FYI the last one sold 540 quarts in 1.5 hours). The quarts will be sold for $10 a piece. The proceeds from this stew will go towards a life member of the Rescue Squad who has grown up through the department as well as raising their kids there. Unfortunate circumstances have come about she has encountered numerous different medical issues that are still yet to be determined what the causes are. Medical bills are starting to pile up after being in and out of hospitals over the last two years and still not having any real definitions of what is going on. Please come out to support OUR department and this family who has been helping in the community for well over 20 years.
