WGFC Raffles Off Historic Anniversary 870 to Raise Funds
November 22, 2021

When West Grove Fire Company celebrated it's 100th Anniversary in 2004, the department arranged for a small number of shotguns to be engraved with the Fire Company's anniversary logo. This limited run of the Remington Model 870 pump-action shotgun proved popular. Now, through the generous donation of Fire Company Life Member and Past President Steve Flegal, one of the anniversary shotguns is being raffled off to raise funds for the WGFC.

This is a rare 2004 WGFC 100th Anniversary shotgun, that features a wood engraving of the Fire Company’s Anniversary logo in the wood stock. The shotgun is a new, in-the-original-box, Remington 870 Express, 12 gauge, with 28” barrel. Only a very few of these 870s were custom made by Remington for WGFC.

Tickets are $5.00 each, five for $20.00. To purchase tickets, send name, address, email, phone number and quantity of tickets requested in an email to gunraffle@WGFC.org, then make payment one of three ways: click the donate button on the WGFC website and use PayPal; send funds to the WGFC on Venmo @WestGroveFire; or send a check to the WGFC, PO Box 201, West Grove, PA 19390. Information about the gun raffle can be found by pressing the "shotgun raffle" on the homepage at wgfc.org . Printed tickets also note a second email address for the gun raffle (golf@wgfc.org) -- either email works to request tickets.

WGFC will send each purchaser a picture of their raffle tickets via email as proof of purchase. (Winner must pick up shotgun at registered FFL dealer). Drawing will be held December 17th, with the winner notified directly, and results posted on the WGFC website.
