Fire department fundraiser is cancelled for today

You can't argue with Mother Nature. She wins every time. The fundraiser that was scheduled for today is rained out. We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may have caused.

We hope to plan another fundraiser for sometimes in 2014. In the meantime, if you were planning to stop by and make a donation, please give it directly to the fire department. They work hard to serve our community. No doubt that they will appreciate the support.
