The Orwell Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary and St. Mary’s Church of Orwell will hold a dinner and polka dance Jan. 25.
The event will be held at St. Mary’s Hall beginning at 4 p.m. with dinner, which will be held throughout the evening. Music will begin at 6 p.m.
The cost for the dinner is $7, and will include three entrees and side dishes. Individuals will also be able to attend and enjoy the music without purchasing a dinner; however, donations will be accepted to support the fire department.
Julie Mordesovich, councilperson and president of the Orwell Volunteer Fire Department Auxiliary, sad the auxiliary has been raising funds for the fire department for the past two years and has been able to provide money for operational equipment for the firefighters.
Such fundraising is a critical component of most volunteer fire departments.
The auxiliary’s efforts to raise funds that evening will be from donations, a 50/50 raffle, sponsorships and Chinese auction items.
