Celebrating Seymour: The 5th Annual Seymour Founders’ Day

The VCF sponsors The 5th Annual Seymour Founders' Day event, which helps raise money for two local fire departments and animal shelter.

The 5th Annual Seymour Founders' Day was a celebration of heritage and history, not to mention a successful fundraiser benefiting Seymour's two fire departments, Citizens' Engine Co. 2 and Great Hill Hose Company. The downtown business district was filled with vendors and family activities. The Seymour Historical Society offered free tours of the Katharine Matthies House and Museum as well. Sponsored in part by VCF, the event raised more than $10,000 in proceeds. Funds will go toward the cost of new equipment and upgrades for the two fire departments, as well as the Seymour Animal Shelter.
