FIRE DEPARTMENT partners with Remember Henry Scott Oldenburg (RHSO) in support of their Hug-A-Bear Project.

“Three Bridges Fire Company partners with RHSO”

On Saturday, January 14th the Three Bridges Volunteer Fire Company (TBVFC) held their annual installation banquet. While many members of the fire company were called to a structure fire, others remained to celebrate the previous year’s successes. Among those successes was the Three Bridges Five Mile Road Race, held on August 13th, 2016.

For this past year’s run, the TBVFC partnered with Remember Henry Scott Oldenburg (RHSO) in support of their Hug-A-Bear Project. This organization was formed in memory of Henry Scott Oldenburg, a local police lieutenant who passed away following his battle with pancreatic cancer. The organization’s hug-a-bear project seeks to provide stuffed animal puppies to children in hospitals throughout New Jersey who are going through a stressful time.

In appreciation of RHSO’s support at the 2016 race, the TBVFC invited members of RHSO to attend their annual installation banquet and presented them with a $2,000 check to be used towards purchasing the stuffed animal puppies. The TBVFC plans to partner with RHSO again for this year’s race, scheduled for Saturday, August 12th, 2017.  Race information can be found on our website www.TBVFC.com.
