Delran Fire Company #1 Building from 1916 to Today

Delran Fire Company #1 Ladies Auxiliary will be celebrating their 100th Anniversary in June.

The Ladies Auxiliary was started in June 1923 with the idea to help the firemen, plus to aid families affected by fire.
The Auxiliary raised money by selling items, such as tea bags (1 cent each), flowers, small rugs, chances, books, food items and merchandise club books. They helped the firemen with their turkey suppers in the 1940s and 1950’s. They served banquets to a number of local organizations and rented the use of the old kitchen. More than 100 women were on the membership list. Of course, this was all before we had Fire Commissioners and a fire tax.
In the 1960’s, many pizzas were made and sold at Bingo games every week. Square dances and flea markets were held also.
The Ladies bought the fire company, the fire boat (still in use today), a winch for the Dodge Brush truck in 1956, a new nozzle and first aid kit for the jeep, a ladder, new flooring for the old firehouse, plus many other items. They paid toward the “Building and Loan” each month.
The women also had uniforms and a banner made to participate in many parades years ago. The Auxiliary women enjoyed socializing with each other on trips to restaurants, covered dish suppers, parties, and craft nights.
They always supported each other in times of sickness, death, weddings and births. We strive to continue this legacy today.
