St. Ignatius Fire Auxiliary sends message

ST. IGNATUS — St. Ignatius Fire Auxiliary’s greatest priority has always been to keep the members of our amazing community safe. In order to do that, we made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Fireman’s picnic typically held at the end of June. However, we are taking this opportunity to give back to you. Let us serve you. We are excited to share with you that we have decided to host a free dinner to thank all of our wonderful donors and treasured community members. We have not determined the date as of yet, but we are hoping it will be safe to do so by the end of August or in early September. Stay tuned.
