Acushnet Firefighters' Association
First established in 1925, the Acushnet Firefighters' Association is an organization of past and present members of the Acushnet Fire / Rescue Department whose purpose is to "foster friendship, to promote a greater interest in the civic affairs of the Town of Acushnet and for the good and welfare of the Acushnet Fire / Rescue Department."
The Association is governed by an elected Board of Directors and operated by an elected President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Deputy Chief James Knox is currently serving as the Association's President.
Through annual fundraising activities--such as the food booth at the annual Acushnet Apple / Peach Festival--as well as the collection of membership dues, the Association contributes thousands of dollars each year to local charities. In the past, the Association has contributed to the Acushnet Youth Athletic Association, local Boy and Girl Scout Troops, as well as Acushnet families in their time of need.
Each year the Association organizes an annual Halloween Parade in which hundreds of local families march through the streets of Acushnet in full costume. Our most popular activity is the annual Christmas display in which thousands of lights and dozens of Christmastime decorations are placed on the lawn of the Russell Street fire station. Both of these activities are funded through and appeal to local businesses and could not happen without their generous support.
