CARY – This year, the Cary Fire Protection District is celebrating 100 years of service to the community.
For years, the district held an annual dance as a fundraiser for the firefighters association. That tradition stopped in the 1980s as other fundraising activities were pursued.
As part of this year’s centennial celebration, the district once again will host a ballroom dance. It will be from 7 p.m. to midnight Sept. 14 at the Holiday Inn in Crystal Lake.
Music will be performed by a live band, and hors d’oeuvres will be available, as well as a cash bar.
Tickets cost $20 and may be bought at Cary Fire Protection District Station 1, 400 Cary-Algonquin Road, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. They also can be obtained through any district firefighter.
Special centennial T-shirts also are available for purchase.
