“A Sunday Afternoon With…the Comptche Volunteer Fire Department” will kick off the season for the Kelley House monthly historical lectures on April 27 at 3:00 pm. You’ll meet old-timers and newcomers, fire ladies and quilters, and hear about how the fire department became the glue that holds the community together. The storytellers will regale you with tales of exciting moments in firefighting as well as the inevitable misadventures that beset every volunteer group. On sale will be the Kelley House Annual Historical Review, written by Kay Tahja, which is filled with history, personal reminisces, and photographs celebrating the fire department’s first 50 years.
Admission $5 members; $7 non-members. Light refreshments following the program. Call 707-937-5791 for information.
