Mattapoisett Firefighters' Auxiliary


Our mission is to provide assistance to the members of the Mattapoisett Fire Department in times of need and to be a positive support for our community in the form of participation in local events and through various charitable donations. In pursuit of this goal, we. the members of the Auxiliary, engage in fundraising activities throughout the year both as a non-profit organization and in conjunction with the Mattapoisett Fire / Rescue Association.

The Ladies Auxiliary Prayer

The Ladies wait while their men respond,
united as one in a common bond.
The bond of serving, each in their own way,
the needs that arise, be what they may.
The reheated meals, the unsipped drink,
are a common occurrence, much more than you think.
It's mostly routine and done without flare,
the men return, the Ladies are there.
But when comes the call, the tough one to fight,
a working fire that may last through the night.
The Ladies again wait, but this time they know,
that sooner or later they will go.
As they wait for the signal, the time draws near,
for that sooner or later to be suddenly here.
The men are all weary, some of them spent,
the refreshments that arrive are heaven-sent.
The Auxiliary in fact is more than a name,
it's a dedicated arm of the volunteer game.
So, God, when we pray for the Firemen's care,
include the Ladies who are always there.
