Where Do I Fit In?
 
The volunteer fire company in many if not all communities was the center of town like the church. everyone belonged and everyone pitched in. During the 30's, 40's and 50's Cottekill used to host dances and card parties. The 60's and 70's brought bizzars and chicken BBQs. We had great pancake breakfasts and spagettie dinners through the 80's and 90's, but with fewer and fewer volunteers we now conduct the anual Santa run and an open house during Fire Prevention Week. Plain and simple your community needs you... Your fire company needs you... You need You!!!!!
