Langley Township firefighters host family fun day on Sunday at Krause Berry Farm

Donations will go to the Township of Langley Firefighters' Charitable Society, which supports a number of projects.

Langley Township firefighters are raising money for charities they support with a family fun day on Sunday (Sept. 14).

The event runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Krause Berry Farm and Estate Winery, 6179 248 Street.

It will feature a waffle breakfast served by firefighters, the opportunity to tour fire trucks and take part in firefighter activities for kids, entertainment with Austin Belle at 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., bouncy castles, a pie eating contest and dunk tank.

All events are by donation.

“We are so lucky to have friends like Krause Berry Farms. When they heard we were establishing our charitable society they stepped right up and asked what they could do to help,” said Township of Langley Firefighters’ Charities director Bruce Farquhar. “It was their idea to bring a firefighters-themed family day to their farm and market.

“The Krause family and Valley Traffic Services have really helped us get our charitable society off the ground.”

The aim of the society is to benefit the citizens firefighters protect, through local charitable programs and to assist other charities with similar objectives that operate in the best interest of our community.

The Township of Langley Firefighters’ Charitable Society is a not-for-profit society registered in B.C., in the interest of focusing the fundraising and benevolent activities of the Township of Langley’s firefighters.

Currently the TLFCS has several projects under development, including a snack program for local students with the School District #35 Foundation and Save On Food Group. It is also installing clothing donation bins at Township of Langley fire halls, as well as organizing fundraising activities for the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation, the B.C. Professional Firefighters Association Burn Fund, the Canadian Cancer Society and Muscular Dystrophy Canada.
