Members are also trying to go after some grant money, “but it’s very limited for grants for a truck right now,” he says.
For fundraisers in 2014, the firefighters are hoping to have “three or four drive-through chicken fries, fish dinners, a possible breakfast and maybe a dance. There are a lot of different ideas being discussed, and we want to have something nice for the public that will strike their interest.”
Froehling adds, “We are very grateful for the donations we have already received and appreciate the assistance we get from the community.”
