Fundraising was the topic of the evening when the Idyllwild Fire Protection District Auxiliary met on Monday, April 15. Plans are being developed to raise money this summer for improvements to the fire station.

Project ideas range from simple booths at community events to tell the community what the auxiliary is and what it hopes to accomplish, to fundraisers such as a pancake breakfast or a drawing at the end of the summer for a fire station playhouse built by firefighters.

The next meeting of the auxiliary will be 6 p.m. May 6 at the Fire Station. New members and new ideas are encouraged.
