CVVFA Announces Schedule for 2021
The Cumberland Valley Volunteer Firemen’s Association announces the meeting schedule for 2021. We are celebrating our 120th year of providing education, leadership, and fraternalism to the fire service and public safety community.
“We have not let COVID cancel our Association” said President Chief Allen Baldwin. “Like everyone, the safety of our members continues to be our primary concern. But with the tools we have in the virtual world, we are moving our agenda forward.” The CVVFA remains open for business”.
We will meet on ZOOM Saturday March 13 at 10:00 a.m. for a special St. Paddy’s week get together. “This won’t be a business meeting, it’s a social event to allow members and guests to interact. We will share some of our latest projects and videos. We’ll have a guest speaker or two and just have an all-around good time socializing with the best members the planet” says Second Vice President Dr. Candice McDonald who is arranging the event.
Zoom meeting log information will be posted on social media and CVVFA.org. Members will receive an electronic newsletter prior to the meeting. Members should feel free to invite guests to participate.
The regular 2021 Spring meeting will be virtual on Saturday May 15 at 9:00 a.m. Members will receive registration instructions as the time nears.
“The 120th Annual Convention is scheduled as an in-person event August 5-7 in McConnellsburg PA. “We will be monitoring the prospect for live events in Pennsylvania and will make a decision to go forward or to go virtual well before the event” said Baldwin. “We will also make the same assessment for the Fall Meeting later in the year” he added.
“Most of the work of the Association’s signature program, Protecting Emergency Responders on the Highway is moving at a fast pace” according to First Vice President Chief Joe Kroboth. “That said, I don’t want to minimize the work of our Community Risk Reduction committee who staff our I-Fire Prevention website. We are always looking for persons who enjoy public fire safety education and we welcome them to our team”.
The business of the CVVFA rolls on. Members may expect their dues notices to arrive shortly. There will be no dues increase. $5 per year is a great deal and it includes a 12-month subscription to the Pennsylvania Fireman. What’s in your wallet? We hope it is a CVVFA membership card.
