BVFA MISSION STATEMENT


The Bowmansville Volunteer Fire Association was organized and chartered in 1912. The purpose of the Bowmansville Volunteer Fire Association is to include love of country, good citizenship, civic virtue, and self-sacrifice; and to perpetuate the spirit which from the earliest days and actuated volunteer firemen in the rendition of service of the highest type in the protection of life and property from fire, without hope of fee or reward.

HISTORY OF OUR NICKNAME


Fair Sign
The Rainmakers
The Bowmansville Volunteer Fire Association was organized and chartered in 1912. From the Young Men’s Club to the Bowmansville Fire Department, until 1962 the main source of funding was the Field Days held each August. For many of those years “RAIN DATES” were set “just in case”, and more often than not used. One year the regular date was used as well as two or three “rain dates” (11 rain outs in 9 years). It was during this time we received the name “RAINMAKERS”. One year Walter Scrace and a few others manned a banner BOWMANSVILLE RAINMAKERS and the department paraded at the Erie Co. fair with this banner and umbrellas. Our Rain Maker Logo has gone thru a few changes; from an umbrella, to a fireman holding an umbrella, to our present Indian, representing fire, rescue, and cadence corps.
