Ruscombmanor Fire Com­pany had record-break­ing at­ten­dance at the 2019 New Year’s Day Pork and Kraut Din­ner, serv­ing more than 900 din­ners.

“We did have to stop serv­ing about 30 min­utes early this year due to run­ning out of pork, for this we do apol­o­gize to those that we had to turn away,” the fire com­pany posted on their Face­book page. “We thank ev­ery­one who came out to the diner or stopped in for take-out. We hope you all en­joyed the meal. We ap­pre­ci­ate your sup­port!”

Ruscombmanor As­sis­tant Fire Chief Eric Fox said the fire com­pany has been serv­ing the New Year’s Day Pork and Kraut Din­ner for more than 20 years.

“This was a record break­ing crowd. We have served around 800 peo­ple at the past din­ners,” said Fox. “It was re­ally great to break the record this year. It made all our mem­bers and sup­port staff very happy and we are glad so many peo­ple en­joy the din­ner each year and in turn tell oth­ers about it.”

Fox said that the din­ner serves the com­mu­nity by bring­ing all the peo­ple to­gether to talk and so­cial­ize and it serves the fire com­pany by be­ing one of its big­gest fundrais­ers and brings all its mem­bers to­gether as they spend the days be­fore the din­ner pre­par­ing the pork and all the trim­mings.

“It is a lot of work but we en­joy it,” said Fox.

Pep­peridge Farms do­nated the din­ner rolls and desert items for the din­ner. Girl Scout Troop 1227 and Boy Scout Troops 508 and 569 and their lead­ers and par­ents vol­un­teered at the event. The fire com­pany gives a big thank you to all its mem­bers, sup­port staff and their fam­i­lies for all their help with the din­ner.

“We def­i­nitely ap­pre­ci­ate your ef­forts!” the fire com­pany posted on Face­book. “With­out ev­ery­one work­ing to­gether it would be im­pos­si­ble to have this event, so thank you to ev­ery­one that played a part in mak­ing this year’s din­ner a record break­ing event!”
