Ladies Auxiliary

Can you believe it, our 2018 convention is fast approaching? At the  convention everyone enjoys stopping by the Auxiliary’s Silent Auction table to see what great items are available. Did you know the Auxiliary Silent Auction is one of our main fund-raisers for the year? With the monies raised the Auxiliary has been able to make sizeable donations to the Memorial fund, Missouri Fire Service Funeral Assistance Team, and to the National Fallen Fire Fighters Survivors Conference. The Auxiliaries objective is to continue supporting great organizations like these and others. We have done this with your gracious bids on our silent auction items. We thank you very much for the support you have given us each year.

Please help us continue by donating to the silent auction this year. We are looking for silent auction items from any and all departments, auxiliaries, or individuals. Donations in the past have been homemade quilts, antique fire service items, fire related decorations and décor, gift baskets and so much more. We accept non fire related items also. One department worked with an amusement park to donate passes and more for their donation. Your donated silent auction items are how we can continue financial support for organizations that need our help. We need departments, auxiliaries, and individuals to bring silent auction items to convention this year for our continued success. Volunteers are needed to work the auxiliary booth for 1-2 hours. Please contact me if you can volunteer. Continue Reading →

A Letter from FFAM Auxiliary

Wow, what a wonderful convention we just attended. Sedalia Sate Fair Fire Department did a great job of hosting the convention. The weather was not bad, a little chilly but nothing to stop a few firefighters. The contest games were furious again this year. Old friends had a chance to catch up and new friends were made along the way. How about our guest speaker, Dan Meers, “KC Wolf,” the Chiefs’ mascot on Saturday night? He is so inspirational, everyone enjoyed listening to his message.

The Auxiliary would like to thank everyone for the awesome support we had all weekend. Thank you to everyone who brought in items for our silent auction and alcohol for the booze raffle. There were so many great items for this years silent auction. A corn-hole game made and donated by a firefighter from Little Dixie FPD, two tables made and donated by FFA Chaper in Paris, a Branson getaway basket from Southern Stone, a fire truck decorated and donated by Galt, home decor items, and so many other great items the list goes on and on. I last heard we made close to $2,200 from the silent auction. We also made about $550 from the items we had for sale such as the jewelry, auxiliary T-shirts and more. We raised aver $500 from the booze tub raffle. Everyone dug deep again this year to help the Auxiliary raise money. Which we will later decide who will receive a donation(s) to assist with fire related services. If you know of a deserving organization please let us know. Again thank you to everyone, we could not do it without each of you. Continue Reading →
