The Glassy Mountain Fire Department (GMFD) will hold its 10th annual Rummage and Bake Sale, an important fundraiser that benefits the fire department and ultimately the community Saturday, May 5 from 7:30 a.m. to noon.
The event will be held rain or shine at the Beaver Dam Fire Station located at 315 Beaver Dam Road, off Highway 25 (2.7 miles north of Route 11). Bargains will be found on everything from furniture, appliances, tools, sporting equipment to home décor and clothing.  Home-baked desserts, cakes, cookies and other goodies will also be available for sale.
The Glassy Mountain Fire Service Area was established in 1987 for the purpose of organizing a volunteer fire department to provide fire/safety protection and a first response emergency unit within the community.  The Glassy Mountain Fire Service Area covers 66 square miles with a population of 2,500 residents in the area known as The Dark Corner in northern Greenville County, which stretches from the east at the Spartanburg County line on Highway 14 to the west of Highway 25 and begins in the south near Highway 414 to the North Carolina state line.
The district operates five fire stations – Glassy Mountain (Headquarters), Beaver Dam, Oak Grove, Dividing Water and Cliffs with about 40 volunteer firefighters and first responders.
