(Seguin) -- The Geronimo Volunteer Fire Department will be turning up the heat during its annual Bar-B-Q Supper and Auction fundraiser.
Roger Bading, a member of the VFD, says the event will again include its famous barbecue recipe, auction, raffle and games for the kids.
"The event is essentially the same as it has been the last few years with barbecue beef with all the trimmings starting at five o'clock. We'll serve until about eight and then our big auction is at 6:30, all at the community center. We will have plates to go available at the fire station from 12 'til 2 Saturday afternoon. Of course, to-go (plates also) that evening at the community center," said Bading.
Bading says each year, hundreds of families turn out to support the area fire house. He says in addition to raising money, it has become a reunion of sorts.
"This gives us a lot of the funds to operate on during the year for operating expenses like fuel and maintenance and equipment purchases and updates and training for our members. It's a big part of our financial budget for the year," said Bading.
The event begins at 5 p.m. Saturday in the Geronimo Community Center. Live entertainment will be provided by Best Friends from 5 to 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 each and can be purchased at the door. To-go plates can be picked up at the Geronimo VFD located across the street from noon to 2 p.m.
