Members of the Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association delivered over 600 meals to Alexandria firefighters with a donation of lunches on June 5 from Foster’s Grille over a period of six weeks.
According to the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “Delivering the meals were Foster’s Grille owners Bruce and Michael Catts and Friendship Firehouse board members Catherine Weinraub and Marion Moon. Union Street Public House participated in the Feed the Fight program with donations from Moon, former City Councilman Frank Fannon, members of the Old Dominion Boat Club, and other individuals.”
Board president Joe Shumard said, “The Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association has wrapped up their six weeks of feeding the local firefighters. Each week, through sponsors, we fed approximately 90 firefighters. We thank them so much for their service and for being out there on the front line.”
