The public was welcome and enjoyed cookies and punch.
 
Ethan Geary, the Chaplain of Schuyler volunteer fire company says the benefits of being  a fire fighter far outweigh any challenges he faces, "It's a brotherhood to be volunteer fire fighter. We stick together. It just embodies what it means to be in brotherhood."
 
Each year the VFW and Schuyler Volunteer Fire Company alternate locations for the event.
