Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Department

Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Department

The Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Department routinely risks their lives for our community each time they respond to an emergency.  Their dedication to keeping the community safe is admirable and often comes at a cost to volunteer and their families. In addition to responding to fire related emergencies, the Wise Avenue Volunteer Fire Department hosts popular community building events, including the popular train garden that draws thousands of spectators each holiday season.

Drug City Pharmacy

George Fotis has grown Drug City Pharmacy from a community Drug store into a hidden destination. The world class selection of whisky and Bourbon in the liquors department, the tasting room, the very popular fountain, and the now beloved drug city street fair all draw people from all over the Baltimore area.  His continued support of community groups all over Dundalk.
