Tonight was a fundraiser for the fire department David volunteers with. He’s out of town on business but I picked up our daughter and we went. It’s fall break which probably accounted for the lower than usual turnout but it was still good to visit with friends and neighbors.
If you live in an area served by a volunteer fire department, I urge you to offer your support any way you can. These volunteers give generously of their own time and put their lives on the line for no compensation and often with less than adequate equipment. And if you live in Pontotoc County, Oklahoma, please vote “yes” on the fire department sales tax proposition November 6. Thank you!
*After I posted this, one of our area firefighters posted a picture of her niece at the fundraiser. It was so cute I asked if I could share it here. Her name is Jadey:
