June 28th was a great day in Allendale.  Not only was it the 4th Saturday of the 2014 season for the returning Allendale Farmers Market, but it was Allendale Volunteer Ambulance Day at the Market.  

Volunteer members brought over an ambulance and first response vehicle so that member of the Allendale community and Allendale visitors could "Touch-a-Truck".  

Kids of all ages, parent and grandparents too visited the ambulance, climbed inside, tried out some of the medical items inside and learned more about AVAC.  

It was a beautiful day; bright & sunny and everyone had a great time showing off our ambulance and telling folks all about AVAC.

Friday, December 5th will be a busy evening for our AVAC personnel. We have two important events that evening:

  1. Join with the Chamber of Commerce of Allendale and the Allendale Fire Department to bring Santa into town. Lights, sirens, screams & cheers from children will usher Santa into the center of Allendale where he will visit with children of all ages in the Bank of America offices. Join us that evening for fun, friendship and some fresh air!
  2. We will also be in Saddle River to help light the tree in front of Borough Hall on December 5th. Join us at that time for some wonderful hometown festivities as we help Saddle River welcome in the holiday season.
