Get the scoop

If you’ve got a craving for ice cream, Wednesday might be a good day to indulge. City PIO Beth Brown reports the following:

“Fredericksburg Fire Department firefighters will be scooping ice cream Wednesday, May 2, at the Baskin-Robbins located at 2229 Plank Rd in Fredericksburg. Baskin-Robbins is sponsoring a 31¢ Scoop Night in order to honor the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.


The Foundation remembers America’s fallen heroes, and assists their families. They provide training for firefighters to prevent deaths in the line of duty, and provide consumer information to increase fire prevention in our communities. 


The Fredericksburg Fire Department personnel will be at Baskin-Robbins from 5 p.m. – 9 p.m. In return, Baskin-Robbins will show their support for local firefighting heroes by making a corporate donation of $100,000 to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation.”
