Senior Firefighter Fickes was a long time member of the Aetna Hose, Hook & Ladder Company and our department was honored to be included by Iron Hill with the expansion of this release to the Newark location this year. Proceeds ($1 from every pint sold) benefit firefighter causes. The release at the Wilmington location takes place at 11:30am. The release at the Newark location takes place at 2:00pm. We hope you will join us to remember these heroes and to support great causes. Please print and bring with you the attached coupon which directs 20% of your bill to the Aetna Hose, Hook & Ladder Company in memory of these firefighters. Proceeds will be placed in a special fund named for these firefighters to support firefighter safety and training. We hope to see you on October 23rd!
