Supporting Towns 4 Troops
Cronomer Valley Fire Dept. was represented at the 2019 Towns 4 Troops BBQ Competition for First Responders at the Black Rock Fish and Game Preserve in Moutainville, NY on Saturday, July 20th,2019. The scorching weather didn’t stop the First Responders from cooking up their gourmet dishes with many Vet Services and and Armed Services Displays on hand. Kids cooled off with water guns and misting tents Chefs Chuck Dieckmann, Bill Bell, Jim Gillette and Alan Hamilton prepared the 1st Place Appetizer featuring Alabama White Sauce Chicken Nuggets as voted in by the attendees on the field. The specially prepared Chicken Entree using “Girl Scout Cookies” and Corn Ears as the secret ingredient was judged by the event judges. The Orange County Jail Corrections Division won First Place with their Chicken Pot Pie as Team-CVFD took 4th Place with BBQ Chicken Quarter with Mac and Cheese and Baked Beans. The corn was in the Mac and Cheese topped with “Girl Scout Cookie” butter and Garlic Topping!
Towns 4 Troops is a Non-Profit organization that originated around the annual First Responder Iron Chef Style BBQ competition in an effort to reach the social needs of our local Military and Troops! We so often take for granted the luxury of taking our spouses out to dinner, planning a night with friends to watch the big game, sharing a holiday meal or being at the hospital when your child is born. Towns4Troops created an organization to raise funds to be able to support just that, for those who protect and support us so faithfully. If anyone wants to donate to this cause or become a sponsor for the next “Iron Chef BBQ Competition”, you can go to their website : Towns 4 Troops Website and Donations at Work!
