Fire Company receives generous donation from Poco’s!


Poco’s Restaurant owner Wayne Cauble presents Doylestown Fire Company president Bill Cope and Deputy Chief Ed Truman with a check for $4226, the proceeds of a fund raiser held at the restaurant on 9/11/11, in honor of the work of Doylestown firefighters on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. Cauble said that $1356 of the donation was from cash donations by customers that evening at the Doylestown landmark, and $2870 was the net profit for the night from sales at the restaurant and bar.

The members of Doylestown Fire Company No. 1 are very appreciative of the generosity and efforts of Wayne Cauble, his staff and the customers that evening.
