Ladies Auxiliary

Our History:
Originally, the Ladies Auxiliary was formed by the wives of firemen so that they could support their men in times of fire. Even today, in the event of a structure fire, the Ladies Auxiliary will come to the firehouse, make coffee, get jugs of water and juice together as well as food sometimes, and bring it out to the men working the fire to prevent dehydration and exhaustion. Today our ranks include anyone who is interested in helping others and in supporting our Fire Company. Current membership is approximately 35 women.
What we do:
The Rhinecliff Ladies Auxiliary meets on the third Wednesday of each month at 7pm with the exception of the months of July and August. Membership dues are $5 annually. At meetings, events and activities are planned for the fire co and Rhinecliff community. We support the Fire Company through fund-raisers such as bake sales and soup sales, but also run community events such as the annual Halloween Party at the firehouse We also donate to local charities, worthy causes and help out fellow Rhinecliffers when we find out there is a need. Five years ago we started a College Scholarship Fund for HS Seniors living within the Rhinecliff Fire District.
