BCC Rescue Squad gearing up for October events

October is a busy month for the Bethesda-Chevy Chase Rescue Squad, when two of their major annual events are held. On Saturday, October 7, from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM, the squad hosts Rescue Day 2017, designed to coincide with the large crowds from the nearby Taste of Bethesda event the same day and time. Visitors of all ages can tour the squad, watch fire and rescue demonstrations, look at vehicle and equipment, and enjoy a moon bounce and free firefighter hats for kids. Admission will be free.

On October 22, the squad's Alumni Association will host an All You Can Eat Crab Feast fundraiser from 1:00 to 5:00 PM in the squad's Anastasi Room. The menu will include steamed crabs, fried chicken, potato salad, baked beans, applesauce, and rolls, along with beer and soda. Tickets cost $45 per person in advance (or $50 at the door).

For tickets or further information, call 301-442-4136 or visit Proceeds will benefit the B-CC Rescue Squad.

The squad is located at 5020 Battery Lane.

Has anyone been to the BCCRS crab feast? My entire life of living in Bethesda and I have never been....wondering if I should give it a shot this year? Worth it?

probably a bit far for you Robert, but are you planning on supporting our local volunteers?

The kids love the fire station tour and goodies.

As for the annual Crab Feast? Not my style, I just send BCCRS a donation instead.
