Mission Fire and Rescue receives $2000 donation from Mission Fire Auxiliary
Web posted September 17, 2013
Mission Township Fire Chief Randy Roach accepts a $2000 donation from Mission Fire Auxiliary member Jan Slayton. Dollars donated to the Fire Department were earned from various fund raising efforts held by the Mission Fire Auxiliary throughout the year. Events include an annual raffle at the Fire Fair, brat sales at the 4th of July parade, Christmas wreath sales, and bake sales. The auxiliary meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month for lunch, fun, and a short meeting to discuss upcoming Township events. These activities may include providing a meal for the firefighters during a controlled burn, organizing a benefit for a needy Mission Township resident, or planning the next fundraiser.
Fire Chief Randy Roach thanks the Mission Fire Auxiliary for their fund raising efforts. This $2000 donation will go towards purchasing Wild Land Fire fighting gear, and to help equip two new firetrucks arriving in early 2014. Randy also thanks the community for its continuing support for the Fire Fighters and the Fire Department.
Mission Township Fire Department holds its annual Fire Fair the 3rd Saturday of July each year. Events include a roast pork luncheon, tours of the Safe House and North Air helicopter, games, auctions, raffles, and a chicken poopin' contest.
Coming up on Saturday September 28th is the Mission Township Fire Department open house from 8:00 until 1:00 at Mission Town Hall. The Firemen will host a pancake and sausage breakfast along with juice, coffee or milk for a free will donation. There will also be a bake sale hosted by the Fire Auxiliary. Tours of the Fire Department will be offered throughout the day, and Fire Fighters will be available to answer questions and discuss stories in the lives of a Fireman.
