Ladies Auxiliary Committee

Formed in 1969, to support the newly formed Somerville Volunteer Fire Department, the Ladies Auxiliary has the following mission: 
  • To raise funds for the fire department
  • To furnish refreshment for firefighters at the scene of a fire
  • To assist victims of a major fire
  • to sponsor projects for the welfare of the community 
We work on several fundraisers each year, which involve food sales, raffles, and sales of commercial items. Currently we have the Thanksgiving pie sales, July 4th basket raffle, and a Thanksgiving basket raffle. 
The funds are used to purchase various pieces of equipment and to support operating costs of the Fire Department. When we call you to ask for donations of foods or funds, you are directly helping your Fire Department improve its services! 

Every year in August the Auxiliary shows their appreciation to the firefighters and their families by having a cookout for them. 

The Ladies' Auxiliary meets on a monthly basis. Annual dues are $5.  We are always looking for new members, so give us a call if you'd like to help the Auxiliary out!

Current members: 
Lisa Miler, president 549-7171
Peggy Dostie, treasurer 549-7353
