The public is invited to come out to the Dogfish Head Alehouse in Seven Corners next Tuesday, July 23, to help the Bailey’s Crossroads Volunteer Fire Department raise funds for a new ambulance.
The restaurant, at 6220 Leesburg Pike, will donate a portion of the proceeds from 11:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. to the fire department’s campaign to raise $270,000. The station is one of the busiest in the county, so its ambulances get a lot of use, says EMT Jenn Lewis.
Construction is under way on a new fire station to replace the building damaged by heavy snowfall in 2010. Lewis says the firefighters’ temporary quarters, on the corner of Moncure Avenue and Columbia Pike, are “cozy and comfortable.” The new station is supposed to be finished by the end of the year.
