San Andreas Fire Protection District Crab Feed
Date(s) - 02/03/2018
San Andreas Town Hall
Tickets are now on sale for the 9th annual San Andreas Firefighters Association Crab Feed to be held Feb. 3 in the San Andreas Town Hall, 24 Church Hill Road, San Andreas.
The doors open at 6 p.m. for a social hour followed by dinner at 7 p.m. Tickets to the all-you-can-eat event are $40 per person. To purchase tickets, call 209-754-4693.
Those who want tickets are advised to call soon. The event usually sells out and seating is limited.
For the ninth year, San Andreas Fire Chief Don Young will preside in the kitchen. Volunteer firefighters and other supporters of the district will serve the food.
During the dinner, a number of prizes donated by area businesses will be raffled to guests. There will also be a door prize. A no-host bar is provided.
Money raised goes to purchase needed equipment, including safety gear worn by firefighters. Tax revenue is not sufficient to maintain the level of service the district provides. The San Andreas district makes up the difference thanks to thousands of hours of volunteer time spent responding to fires, accidents and other service calls, repairing equipment and hosting fundraising events.

On Pioneer Day Engine 165 rolls up Highway 49 as part of the San Andreas Fire Protection District contingent at the San Andreas Pioneer Day Parade held in September. Such equipment might make it seem that the district is well funded. In fact, this engine costs almost three times as much as the district’s approximately $260,000 in annual tax revenue. It was purchased only thanks to a large federal grant. The San Andreas Firefighters Association hosts fundraisers including a Feb. 3 Crab Feed to purchase equipment including essential protective gear for firefighters.
