Dear Members of the Community,
It is with great sadness and disappointment that we once again must announce that due to the uncertainty of the restrictions placed on amusement type events as we continue to recover from the effects of COVID-19, the 2021 Mahopac Volunteer Fire Department Carnival and Dress Parade have been canceled again this year. Although the State guidelines appear to be everchanging, the uncertainty of the restrictions that we will be required to follow make it difficult to plan, prepare and weigh the costs to operate against the safety and success of the event. As a Department, we feel that the safety and well-being of our members and the members of the community who support us must come before our fundraising efforts.
We hope you remain healthy and safe,
