Rotary Grant Award




The Community Volunteer Fire Company of District 12 out of Fairplay in Washington County, Maryland, is pleased to announce that they were one of 25 Washington County charitable organizations to receive a grant from the Rotary Club of Hagerstown. The grants were awarded at a luncheon held on June 19th at the Morris Frock Post 42 American Legion in Hagerstown. Company 12 was awarded $1,000 from Hagerstown Rotary.

As a volunteer fire department, Company 12 relies on grants and donations to cover expenses for the purchase and maintenance of equipment for their firefighters, and for the upkeep of their fire department and banquet hall on Tilghmanton Rd. in Fairplay. The banquet hall is also an important source of fundraising, as they rent the hall to other groups and use it for their own fundraisers, including a monthly Bingo game, meat bash, and a variety of other events.

Currently, Company 12 has embarked on a significant fundraising project to purchase a new fire truck – estimated cost of which is $898,000. They are also in the middle of their annual fund drive, proceeds from which go to support the invaluable efforts to protect the Fairplay community and surrounding area.
