Flower, candy sale helps equip Birdsboro firefighters

BIRDSBORO, Pa. - The Birdsboro-Union Fire Department is giving the Easter Bunny some help this weekend.

The department is selling flowers and Repperts candy at the station in Birdsboro Friday night and Saturday.

Proceeds will help the department buy medical and safety equipment.

"We're primarily municipal funded, but that only covers about 74 percent of expenses, so we rely on fundraising events, fund drives to cover the other 25 percent we need to keep in operation," said Kenneth Long, treasurer.

The sale runs until 9 p.m. Friday and all day Saturday.
