Annual Fundraiser

It's that time of the year again!

To all of the people affected by or living in the area serviced by Mineral Springs Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department.

As you know, we depend on the annual fundraiser to help purchase and maintain equipment and training. We are conducting the annual fundraiser now.

We think it is a great deal! A professional 10 x 13 family portrait valued at $75.00, taken at the fire department on the open house weekend, for ANY size contribution you feel comfortable giving.

A coupon will be given to you with the time and date for the open house weekend and we hope you and your family come see the equipment made possible by your contributions and have your family portrait made.

The open house weekend is December 10th - 11th from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at Station 16 located at 5804 Waxhaw Highway in Mineral Springs.

Thank you very much for your support!
