Lower Milford Fire Company #1 Carnival - June 25-28

The Lower Milford Township Fire Company is located in the Lehigh Valley, which is about 1 hour north of Philadelphia. The Lehigh Valley, not a municipal entity, is instead a grouping of communities that surround the cities of Allentown (home of Mack Trucks), Bethlehem (former home of Bethlehem Steel Corp.) and Easton. The Lehigh Valley is about 5 miles from Allentown.

Lower Milford is a rural community of about 4,000 people. Limeport Stadium, where portions of the movie, Rounding First, were filmed, is in Limeport where our fire company is headquartered. The stadium will celebrate its 75th anniversary this summer.

This year, running from June 25-28, 2008, the Lower Milford Township Fire Company's Carnival is back for its 36th year, and it promises to be bigger and better !

Open nightly from 5pm, then Carnival will feature live band performances, free Puppet Shows for the children, great carnival rides, a silent auction, bingo, a beer and food pavilion, a dunk tank and of course, the grand drawing.

Of special interest to all fans of the movie, Rounding First, director Jim Fleigner has donated quite a number of pieces of memorabilia from Rounding First as his special way of saying thanks to the community, and fans who love the film and would like a genuine memento from it will be able to bid on these items in the silent auction.

Lower Milford Township Fire Company's liaison, Tad Miller has this to say about the Rounding First memorabilia that have been donated by director, Jim Fleigner :

"We're grateful to Jim and all involved in "Rounding First" for the support and generosity of the donation of memorabilia associated with the movie. We believe these items will draw particular interest from bidders because of the film's scenes and association with the Lehigh Valley in general and Limeport in particular, where both our fire station and Limeport Stadium are located. "

All proceeds will benefit Lower Milford Township Fire Company's all-volunteer fire and ambulance services, run by about 35 active volunteer men and women. All activities will be held on the fire company grounds at 1601 Limeport Pike in Limeport. Most carnival events will be held rain or shine.

Do plan to support this extremely worthy cause .... why not plan on enjoying the wonderful carnival atmosphere, and maybe you might be fortunate enough to win one ( or more ) of the authentic pieces of memorabilia from Rounding First !
