Got stuff?

Have you been spring cleaning and found some items that you longer need, but could be someone else’s treasure? Consider donating to the Lancaster County Carriage & Antique Auction (our version of a mud sale). This is a consignment auction, but if you donate an item, that means 100% profit for the fire company! Antiques, furniture, carriages, tack, crafts, quilts and more are accepted as donations and consignments. Learn more here!

Honorable Commitment

John Schell (57 years) and Bud Shirk (41 years) were presented with awards of  appreciation at the Thanksgiving Banquet on November 21, 2015. The awards were imprinted with these words of gratitude.

You have demonstrated honorable commitment and service to the Hand-in-Hand Fire Company and Bird-in-Hand community. Your years of active firefighting and leadership have made an incredible impression on multiple generations of volunteers. Thank you for sharing your time, energy and life with us!
