As of Oct. 1, when the Skaneateles Dispatch Center closes, the Firemen's Auxiliary will close its Loan Closet (after 50 years) for Skaneateles Fire District residents.
The main reason for this is when the Dispatch closes, all the doors to the Fire Hall will be locked and we won't be able to leave items for pick up and drop off.
I'm sorry, but trying to make appointments for pick up and drop off would be more time consuming, and I don't have the extra time.
I would like to offer my heartfelt "Thanks" to all the dispatchers, who have been invaluable in helping and the rest of the Loan Closet Committee over all these years.
If any local volunteer organization or church group wishes to take over the Loan Closet, please call me as soon as possible at 685-6101.
Skaneateles residents can go to the Red Cross in Auburn to borrow hospital items for home care.
