Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association to Host George Washington Parade Day Breakfast

The Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association invites the public to join in their annual breakfast on the day of the George Washington Birthday Parade. Witness the first appearance of the day by George Washington and enjoy a hearty breakfast before the parade!

The breakfast event will be held on Monday, February 21, at 9 a.m., at Holiday Inn Hotel and Suites at 625 First Street in Alexandria. Tickets are $30 per person. Funds raised will benefit the Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association. Tickets may be purchased by contacting Bill Kehoe at 703.751.6416.

At the three-course breakfast, the Friendship Veterans will also be recognizing the latest class of Living Legends of Alexandria, as well as presenting the Reverend Ben Lynt Distinguished Service Award to a surprise recipient.

While no longer an active firefighting organization, the Friendship Veterans Fire Engine Association continues as one of the oldest fire companies in the country. The Association promotes fire and life safety education programs, awards scholarships, and maintains firefighting artifacts at Friendship Firehouse Museum. The firehouse, located at 107 South Alfred Street in Old Town Alexandria, is open Saturdays and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.  It will also be open on Parade Day for free tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

For more information, call 703.751.6416 or visit www.friendshipfirehouse.net.
