Chilson Volunteer Fire Department is set to hold its 42nd annual Valentines Dinner Dance on Saturday, February 8th at 5:30 pm at the E.M.A. at 9 Maplewood Lane in Ticonderoga.
For more than four decades the dance has been the highlight of late winter for generations of Chilson and Ticonderoga area friends and neighbors.
Dance music will again be curated by local D.J. Mike “Doc” Vilardo. Throughout the evening there will be the familiar mini-raffles of prizes donated by local businesses, as well as the traditional cash raffle with $500 and $100 prizes.
Proceeds from the dinner dance help Chilson Volunteer Fire Department outfit its firefighters with the gear they need to safely fight interior fires, and to equip its trucks with the tools needed to rescue accident and fire victims.
Tickets are in demand and will sell out quickly. Because attendance has to be guaranteed in advance to the caterers, the bulk of tickets must be sold in advance; there will be only a very few tickets available at the door. Call (518) 585-6951 or e-mail ChilsonVFD@gmail.com to make a reservation.
