In the winter of 1944 North Greece Ladies Auxiliary was chartered with the State of New York.
This was the effort of 23 ladies whose husbands were volunteer firemen with the North Greece Fire Department.
The object of the organization shall be to assist the North Greece Fire Department in every way possible and to the community. The ladies in the beginning raised money to purchase supplies and equipment for the department. They went to working fires with beverage and food.
Today with 23 active members, they serve dessert at monthly department meetings, serve beverages at working fires and meals for fillin crews or fire fighters if necessary. Cook and serve breakfast for the Breakfast with Santa and serve breakfast for the workers at the Easter Egg Hunt. The ladies do the Easter Egg baskets that are prizes for the hunt. We are available to other groups within the department to help them.
For community service the Auxiliary ring bells for the Salvation Army kettles at Wal-Mart. You will see the Auxiliary at assistance living center doing crafts with the residents. You will the auxiliary marching in the Barnard and Hilton parades.
In 1989 Auxiliary created the Charlie Werner/Sandy Miller scholarship fund for high school students whose parent is an active fire fighter, auxiliary member, exempt member, or member of Explorer Post.
