Churchbridge Fire Rescue Challenge Coin

Churchbridge Fire Rescue has their own challenge coin! A challenge coin is a small medallion that bears an organization's insignia or emblem and is typically carried by the organization's members. The history of the coin has several stories, most of which have military origins. Historically, they were given to prove membership to an organization, to commemorate a special achievement, exchanged in recognition of a visit and also to enhance morale. In moder day, the rules of the challenge coin have become more relaxed. The coin has become a collectors item, sought after by fellow service memebers and emergency services personnel. The Churchbridge Fire Rescue is selling these challenge coins as a fundraiser for their department. The coins can be purchased for $20 from any member of Churchbridge Fire Rescue and at the Town Office. (Shipping at buyers expense).
