The Roanoke Firefighters Auxiliary

A couple of months ago, I told you about several wives of firefighters who were starting the Roanoke Firefighters Auxiliary. I just want to give you guys an update on the group and to fill many of you in who haven't heard about them yet.

The Roanoke Firefighters Auxiliary was started to support Roanoke's Firefighters and their families. Since they began, they have assisted the Heck Family and the Hetherington Family.

Last week they delivered dinner for the Hetherington Family every night.

The women have created a phone and email tree that enables them to discuss issues back and forth and plan for tasks such as above. It seems as though every week or so, another spouse will find out about the group and get involved in what is going on.

If anyone is interested in joining the Auxiliary check out the website here: Roanoke Firefighters Auxiliary. The website offers a little more detail on who can join. Be sure to email them if you are interested. The next meeting will be in January.

Why is it just SPOUSES.

I don't think it is just spouses. I think they have considerations for girlfriends/boyfriends as well. But I cannot speak for them. Why don't you contact them and ask them.
