Folks came out in large numbers on Saturday, July 18 for Chalybeate VFD's first annual dinner and auction, and Chief Daniel Johnson said the turnout was much larger than expected.
"On behalf of Chalybeate Volunteer Fire Department, I'd like to thank all members of the community who came out, supported, or donated to our first annual dinner and auction," Johnson said.
Participating in community events is something that he said the department is looking to do more of in the future. The funds raised at this event will mainly be used for general expenses that the fire department experiences regularly, but there are always unexpected things that arise. "We have lots of projects in mind that these funds will help," he said. "We are truly thankful for the support our communities have shown."
