3rd Annual Vintage Fire Museum Appreciation Day Event


On Saturday, March 11, the Vintage Fire Museum will celebrate its anniversary by holding its third annual “Appreciation Day.” Honored this year will be all those responsible for procuring and restoring the wonderful New Albany 1921 American LaFrance fire engine that was made famous through a photo showing it on a raft in the ’37 flood. Honorees will be Jeff Rider, Judge and Mrs. Terrence Cody, Jim and Jason Mauch, and John Stutzman and other Leavenworth Council members, all of whom played major roles in bringing this historic engine to the Museum and having it so beautifully restored.

The Museum will be open from 10 AM to 5 PM on the day of celebration. At both 11:00 AM and 1:30 PM a short program will be offered highlighting the contributions of the people behind the ’37 flood vehicle story. Our guest speakers will be Jack Monohan, Vic Megenity, and Chris Rainbolt. There will be door prizes. Food will be offered for sale.

The Vintage Fire Museum is located at 723 Spring Street in Jeffersonville, Indiana. Winter hours are Fridays 11-4, Saturdays 10-5, and by request. The museum is open five days a week during the summer. Admission is $6 for adults and $2 for children age three to fifteen; members and children under three are free. Discounts are offered to firefighters, senior citizens, and groups. The facility is available for birthday parties and other special events.
