Lancaster Township Community Day (June 3rd) is combined with the LCFA convention/parade this year. Community day will start at 10am, with parade fire apparatus arriving at 11:30am at the parade staging area to showcase the county fire apparatus. Events will include a vehicle extrication demonstration, an opportunity to handle a hose line, police demonstrations, and fire truck rides.
