Mt. Penn Fire Company

1 week until Fastnacht Time!

Friends and followers, we are preparing for our 53rd Annual Fastnacht Sale next weekend, February 13th & 14th.

Sales begin on Saturday at 8AM and goes until 4PM on both days.

Of course, COVID has affected just about everything, and we are no exception so with that said, here is how we will proceed:

We simply do not know what to expect, so our total quantity of Fastnachts available for sale is limited this year.

Although our sale is scheduled for Feb 13 & 14, it is entirely possible and even likely, that we may sell out on Saturday. If you are planning on getting fastnachts this year we strongly recommend coming on Saturday.

When we are sold out we are done until next year.

We will be selling fastnachts from the fire station at 2711 Grant St. as well as the intersection of Perkiomen Ave. & 23rd St.

All of our members will be wearing masks. We require any customers entering the firehouse to be masked as well.

We will enforce social distancing so if there are too many customers in line inside the firehouse we may ask you to wait outside until others exit with their purchase.

We will have hand sanitizer available, and will be vigilant about cleaning our sales counter.

The costs this year will be as follows:

$10 per Dozen

$5 per 1/2 Dozen

There will be a limited supply of Turkey Syrup available for $4 per jar.

We look forward to seeing all of our loyal customers, but please remember that quantities will be limited this year so DON’T WAIT UNTIL SUNDAY OR YOU WILL MISS OUT!
