Caernarvon Fire Company Ladies' Auxiliary

The Ladies' Auxiliary was founded in 1921. The main goal of the Ladies' Auxiliary is to assist and support the fire department financially and socially in its many activities; be it serving food and drinks to the firefighters at the scene of a fire, helping them at a social function or donating money to the department for the purchase of safety equipment or help with hall renovations.

The Ladies' Auxiliary raises money by catering banquets at the fire hall, selling concessions at the Memorial Day Parade and selling food at local public sales. 

 
Poole Forge MansionHistoric Poole Forge

Nestled into the hillside along the Conestoga creek, sets the once vibrant iron plantation called Poole Forge. The spectacular 1700’s Iron Masters mansion, paymasters house, tenant houses, lime kilns and covered bridge dating from 1859, create the perfect setting for special events. This beautiful and peaceful setting provides the perfect backdrop for outside weddings, family reunions in the pavilion, casual get togethers around the playground and picnics throughout the park.
