ANNOUNCEMENT FOR RELEASE ON THE 2020 CARNIVAL & PONY PENNING CELEBRATION

From: Alex Tucker, President of the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company, Inc.

Amid the COVID-19 Pandemic and after carefully analyzing the three Phases as set forth by Governor Northam for opening Virginia, the Board of Directors of the Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company voted to cancel the 2020 Chincoteague Volunteer Fireman’s Carnival & Pony Penning celebration scheduled to begin July 2, 2020. Please understand that this was not an easy decision to make, with the last pony penning being cancelled over 78 years ago during the second World War. We know how much this community loves this fire company and supports our carnival but with the restrictions put into the phases to prevent the spread of the corona virus, it was the only logical decision to make.

With this said, the foals of the pony herd will be sold by way of online auction, with a date to be determined by the Pony Committee. Plans are still being arranged as to where the ponies will physically be during the auction and we encourage you to keep a close watch on the developments as plans are made public on the auction. Our longtime auctioneer Tim Jennings will be conducting the auction and it should be a positive event for this fire company.

I pray all of you are staying safe, and please don’t hesitate to call us if you need us. We will always be here for you!

Alex Tucker, President
Chincoteague Volunteer Fire Company, Inc

 

UPDATE: 

 

Many of you have asked about how to donate to the fire company. As you know, the Town of Chincoteague DOES NOT impose a fire tax on our citizens and the way the fire company purchases life saving equipment is thru the proceeds of the carnival and auction. If you so desire to send a tax deductible donation to the fire company, there are two ways you can do it.

1. Go to our website at cvfc3.com and click on the “donate” tab or,

2. You can send a check to: PO BOX 691
Chincoteague Island, VA 23336

We appreciate your continued support and we look forward to 2021!

Thanks!
Denise Bowden
