The Glen Ellen Fire Department has a long history of being supported by the community including the Glen Ellen Women's Club. On February 7, 1961, a group of women whose husbands belonged to the Glen Ellen Volunteer Fire Department got together at the Fire House for the purpose of organizing a Ladies Auxiliary.
The objects of this Auxiliary are the promotion of the best interests of the Fire Department members and their families, the creation and maintenance of a fraternal feeling, and the sustaining of a spirit of friendship among the members of both organizations.
In 1993 the name was changed to the Glen Ellen Firefighter's Auxiliary but this group continues to support the Fire Department through a variety events throughout the year. The Auxiliary is best known in Glen Ellen for serving Firemen Fizzes and Mama Mimosas on Mother's Day at the Fire Station which is their major fundraising event but members of this group are also seen working side by side with the firefighters at the annual dance and the Village Fair.
