Ladies Auxiliary of the Logan Volunteer Fire Company
The Ladies Auxiliary was established in 1930. The purpose of the Ladies Auxiliary was, and still is, to offer support to the Logan Volunteer Fire Company. However, their work does not stop there. They have also supported the people both in and out of
The men and women of the Logan Volunteer Fire Company are always willing to risk their lives to keep our community safe. The Ladies Auxiliary tries to make that job just a little bit easier by offering their support in any way that they can. One of the ways that they do this is by supplying food and refreshments when a lengthy call keeps them out for hours. They have provided numerous dinners for the County Chiefs Association and
Providing for the people has been another goal of the Ladies Auxiliary since they began. In January 1949 the memorial, which is now located on the left corner of the Fire Company property, was unveiled. Although the Ladies Auxiliary did not pay for the memorial they conceptualized it. This memorial was designed to honor the fallen heroes of our community. Care packages have been sent overseas to our hard working troops. Baskets and gifts have been sent to the sick and elderly who are unable to leave their homes for long periods. In the 1970’s they “adopted” two French children and their families in need. Periodically gifts and everyday necessities were sent to the families.
All of this support given would not be possible to achieve without fundraising. In their time the Ladies Auxiliary has conducted a wide variety of fundraising. In the early years they sold such items as magazines, household items, Camphor sticks (incense), and 4ounce bottles of Vanilla Extract. In more recent years they have conducted Chinese Auctions, Yard Sales, Bake Sales and also a craft show on Pedricktown Day in October.
The Ladies Auxiliary would like to thank all members of the Logan Volunteer Fire Company, past and present, for letting us be a part of the very special job that you do every day for our community.
