The St. Matthews Fire Department was founded in 1919 and celebrated it’s 100th anniversary October 11 and 12th, 2019.  The St. Matthews Fire Department Reunion Committee worked hard to pull off a wonderful event commemorating this centennial anniversary.  The entire community, along with many past members from across the country,  showed up in large numbers on what ended up being a wonderful Fall weekend in the Bluegrass!  The celebration coincided with the 5th Annual Metro Louisville Firefighters Rib Cook Off.  This “FREE” event for our members and the community would not have been possible without the generous support of all the sponsors listed here!  We thank them for their support of the event which also generates proceeds for the WHAS Crusade For Children.
