March is officially under way and Spring is just 11 days away. As the days get longer so does the fun list of things to do at our Hudson Valley Fire Houses. Our local fire house's are beginning to ramp up their monthly events. Pancake breakfast, Pasta dinners plus flea markets and more will all start populating our calendars.

These monthly fundraiser are a staple for quite few of our local firehouses. It helps with raising money for services, equipment and other items that these organization need to assist their communities in times of need. And some even benefit special causes like scholarship funds.

Check the list of events below for your local fire company. Try to make it to as many events as you can throughout 2019. If you are part of a fire house and want us to include you on this list we update each week please email us at paty.quyn@townsquaremedia.com.
