Support Aspinwall VFD with T-shirt purchase
Aspinwall Volunteer Fire Department is selling T-shirts and hoodies to commemorate the organization's 125th anniversary in 2018.
Black and white long-sleeved T-shirts are available, as well as black sweatshirts.
Prices are $20 to 30.
The Aspinwall VFD operates with 25 volunteers who respond to about 550 calls a year in the borough and neighboring communities. From January to July of this year, members responded to 295 calls.
The department runs two engines, a rescue truck and a squad truck. The $90,000 budget is supported by the borough, which pays about $60,000 for utilities and vehicle maintenance. Volunteers are responsible for raising the balance of funds.
To order a shirt or sweatshirt, call Fire Chief Gene Marsico at 412-728-4477 or Assistant Chief J.C. Teyssier at 412-932-4959. Also, order forms are available at the Aspinwall municipal building on Commercial Avenue.
