With great appreciation, the members, firefighters, and first responders of Galvez-Lake VFD would like to thank the community for their generous donations through our annual fund drive and many fund raising events.

This year, as one of the fund raising events, is the raffling of a beautiful copper waterfall garden that was made and donated by waterfallforge.com. Tickets for the raffle are available for purchase at the fire station, from any of the dinner sales, or any member of the Galvez-Lake Volunteer Fire Department. The raffle will be drawn on Dec. 9, at 1 p.m. Winner need not be present to win.

In December the department will once again do their Caroling with Santa. Donations of food, money, and new unwrapped toys will be accepted. These donations will to go families given to the department by the Ascension Parish Sheriff's office. The route will be posted on the website and local papers soon. The web address is www.galvezlakefiredept.org

The fire department invites you to keep checking the website for locations of the dinner sales, Fire Prevention activities, events that may be taking place at the station, and important news.
