The Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce invites members, their guests and non-members to get out of the cold and ignite some hot business leads at one of Warwick’s oldest fire companies.

On Thursday, Jan. 26, the Raymond Hose Company Fire House at 200 West St. in Warwick will welcome chamber members and guests for an after-hours business mixer from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Everyone is invited to meet, greet and socialize with business professionals and Warwick Fire Department volunteers from around the region in this fully equipped, state-of-the-art firehouse.

While sampling a variety of hors d’oeuvres and beverages (wine and beer available), guests are invited to enjoy a tour of the firehouse as DJ Christopher Ford plays a mix of popular music.

“Members of the Warwick Fire Department are glad to be part of the Warwick Valley Chamber of Commerce and excited to be hosting this month’s Mixer at our Raymond Hose Co.” said Warwick Fire Department Secretary Deborah Schweikart. “We hope to give a better understanding of what the fire department does and how we are one hundred per cent volunteer and always looking for members.”

The all-volunteer department provides professional quality, cost effective fire protection, fire prevention education, and emergency assistance for the residents, visitors, and properties in the Warwick Fire District.

The Warwick Fire Department has a proud tradition of community service that dates back to 1869.

The cost for this winter social event is $10 for Chamber members and their guests and $20 for non-members. For more information or to make a reservation, call the Chamber at: 845-986-2720 or e-mail:
