Spring Branch Volunteer Fire Department Check Presentation

A check presentation was made to the 100 Club of Comal County by the Board of the Spring Branch Volunteer Fire Department in the amount of $1959. This amount represented the year that SBVFD was established which was before there was any real subdivisions in that part of the county. Canyon Dam construction had just begun and there was no lake. There were 2 small schools in the area: Sherwood and Bulverde, each educating about 80 students in 8 grades. According to 1960 census data, there were approximately 4,213 people living outside New Braunfels in Comal County. SBVFD was the only Fire Department outside New Braunfels in the county. While SBVFD is no longer a first responder department, they still continue the long standing heritage of neighbor helping neighbor.
