Summit Hill

Annual campaign

The Diligence Fire Company No. 1, Summit Hill, has announced its annual fund drive for 2010. The drive is the company's major source of income and assists the company in capital expenses, including truck loan payments, equipment and operational expenses.

Included in the fund drive mailing is a donor survey form. The firemen are asking residents to complete the form to allow them to have more information about households in the event they are summoned. Information about elderly persons, handicapped individuals, pets, etc., helps the firemen have a better understanding of what they can expect to find upon response.

Residents can mail their donation and survey form to the fire company or they can be dropped off at the borough hall, John's Auto or Breslin's Hilltop News.
