The Watertown Fire Department recently took part in The  United Way Stock the Pantry Fire Dept. challenge and for the 2nd year in a row, the Watertown Fire Department came out on top! This year the department raised 3,426 pounds of food (compared to 1,661 pounds in 2017!) to help stock the local food pantry to feed those facing food insecurity in Watertown! As winners, they were treated to dinner from Frankies Food Truck Frankies - generously underwritten by our friends at FD Community Federal Credit Union! THANK YOU to everyone who participated in this years Day of Action to Stock the Pantry!


Saturday June 9th



The Fire Department once again walked away with a victory after this years Lip Sync Battle but not without some tough competition. Five acts in total competed for the trophy and bragging rights but all had one goal in mind.

 Money raised at this years event will go to benefit two members of our community Mr. Greg OBrien and Jon Senior who are both in a courageous battle with cancer.

 Performances were nothing short of spectacular from Watertown High School's JD Hearon's  Grease Lightning  and Park and Rec's Jake's own version of Flashdance  to the sweetest act of the night by Cupcake War celebrity and owner of Hardcore Sweets and CBBG dessert bar Jeremy Braddock. 

 The Fire Departments toughest competition surely had to come from Local Celebrity  and WHS Football Coach Luigi Velardi with his outrageously funny rendition of "Bootylicious".

The ongoing battle between these two acts sure  do make the event worth attending and they have never left the fans disappointed.  One can only imagine what will be in store for next year but we can be certain that those in attendance will be thoroughly entertained.

Many Thanks go out to John Elliot for organizing the Battle year after year.

Fun was had by all and the community came together once again to support a great cause!
