The most significant celebration will be that of the 100th anniversary of the Halcottsville Fire Department.

Natalie Ormiston, president of the auxiliary, said the women formed a historical committee to research the fire department in preparation for the celebration. The department actually formed 108 years ago, she said, but at first, it was only a loosely associated group of local men. It wasn’t until 1910 that the group was officially organized, naming themselves the Wawaka Hose Company, after Lake Wawaka in Halcottsville.
