The Blandford Firemen’s Association is sponsoring their annual Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, December 2 from 8:30AM-11:30AM. Santa will arrive at about 9:30 or 10AM with gift bags for youngsters. The breakfast menu will be pancakes, bacon, sausage, coffee, tea, orange juice and cider. Tickets are $5 each for kids ages 5 to 11 and all others (12 and over) cost is $10 per person.

The annual raffle is a favorite with everyone. Donation dates have been extended for drop-off at the Training Center next to the Post Office on Main Street on Monday, Nov. 29 from 6-7:30PM and on Friday, December 1 donations can be dropped off at the gym at Town Hall during the setup from 5:30–7PM.

Emergency Notification: February 3, 2023

Strong winds, low temperatures and dangerously cold wind chill are forecast throughout Friday, February 3rd and Saturday, February 4th in Blandford. Fire Chief Adam Dolby will be opening the Fire Training Center at the Post Office building as a warming and recharging center for residents. If needed, the Town Hall gym will be opened to accommodate larger numbers. We urge residents to consider their elderly and mobility-impaired neighbors in making preparations for any potential loss of power that may necessitate use of the warming center.

In an effort to ensure adequate access to warming facilities, the Blandford Fire Department is asking that residents call 9-1-1 if they are in need of these services. This will enable the Department to respond and allow access to the center as necessary.

Thank you.
