Firefighter Appreciation Dinner, An Annual Event

Celebrating Real Heroes Around Erie, PA

For the last few years, we have been honored to serve the hard-working volunteer firefighters from the Fuller Hose Company #1 in quaint North East, PA. Our journey with the fire department began when one of the Lieutenants was a groomsman in a wedding we served. He was on the planning committee that year and was impressed enough with our service to ask us to provide DJ service for their Appreciation Dinner. The Firefighter Appreciation Dinner is held every year on the third Saturday in January. That first event has blossomed into a great relationship with the department. We now also provide entertainment and sound for their annual summer fundraiser, as well as serving several of the firemen's weddings.

Fuller Hose hosted their Appreciation Dinner at the American Legion Post #105 until 2018 when it moved to Saint Greg's Catholic School Gymnasium, both in North East, Pa. It's a fun event with dinner, a Chinese auction, an Awards Ceremony, a slideshow from the year and dancing. The first year was a bit of a challenge to us because we weren't sure what to expect from the firefighters. However, as we've been welcomed back year after year, we now understand their wants and are able to meet their expectations easily.

Erie Photo Booth Rentals

After DJing a few events for Fuller, we added a Photo Booth to the service we offer. Fuller was excited to add the booth to their experience. Each year we've taken the time to design a unique Photo Strip Template for the firefighters that reflects their dedication and service. The first year we incorporated their company logo. Last year we created a strip with flames on it. For 2019 we incorporated the company colors and their motto. Who knows what we'll come up with for these fantastic volunteers next year?

Erie Event Lighting & Disc Jockey Services

For the first few years Tom served as the DJ & Lighting Tech for the event. Our Event Coordinator, Eve, ran the coordination and acted as MC. However, as our team grew we added a few new faces to the Fuller Hose family. Our DJ & MC, Mike, has fit in nicely to the Firefighter Appreciation Dinner making an appearance at the last 3 events. A friendly photo booth attendant is always on hand to help the guest into the booth.

Fuller Hose Company #1 has become one of our favorite clients and we eagerly look forward to serving not only this annual event, but also the Cash Bash Fundraiser every August AND we are honored to have served several of the firemen's weddings. We're looking forward to many happy occasions in the future!!
