Mark your calendars for Sunday October 20th, and come out and support our annual all-you-can-eat Turkey Dinner. Doors will be open from 12pm to 6pm (or sell out). Sit down dinners are $19 and take-outs are $20. Come dine at the firehouse and eat all you can or order a generously stuffed takeout platter and eat at home. Either way, please come support your local volunteers. Neither Allentown Borough or Upper Freehold Township have dedicated fire taxes so a large portion of our funding comes through fundraisers like this.
