Press Release

CROUSE, N.C. – Crouse Community History and Photo Project is pleased to announce that they will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Crouse Fire Department at the October 8, 2019 meeting.

The group wants to take the opportunity to invite all past/present members of the Crouse Fire Department along with their families and the entire Crouse Community to attend the event.

Over the years more than a few community minded residents of the Crouse area volunteered countless hours to insure that the Crouse Fire Department was built and survived. The event will be a celebration of the volunteer spirit which made it all possible.

The program will consist of a short presentation honoring the early years of the Crouse Fire Department in photographs and stories from past members. The program is titled “It All Started with a Hot Dog Wagon.”

There will also be speakers from local and state government offices that will be recognizing the accomplishments of the Crouse Fire Department along with an address from Charles Hayes the current Crouse FD Chief.

The group will also welcome Oscar Sappenfield and Glenn Reep, Rodney Black, Johnny Elmore and Danny Pendleton, original members of the organization, and Betty Davis who was instrumental in the fundraising required to build and support the fire department. 

The Crouse Community History and Photo Project feels that the Crouse Fire Department hits all of the high points of what community is all about. That sense of volunteer spirit when it comes to serving the community.

The group hopes that many of you will take this opportunity to thank the Crouse Fire Department for 50 years of service to the community.

A small reception, meet and greet will follow the program.

Admission to the October 8 meeting is free and the public is invited.

This event will be held in the Fellowship Hall of Crouse United Methodist Church, GPS address 3311 Crouse School Road, Crouse, NC 28033, on Tuesday, October 8, at 4 p.m.

"The Crouse Community History and Photo Project’s mission is to accumulate, organize, identify, catalog, archive and preserve the memories, photographs and documents pertaining to the history and families of the Crouse community.”
