Volunteer fire department to hold fundraiser | Community Spirit
The Tharptown Volunteer Fire Department is holding a fundraiser on Oct. 19 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at their fire station. This station is located at 23 Highway 80 in Russellville.
Firefighter Charles Adcox said that they are trying to get the word out that the help of the community is needed to keep local volunteer fire departments going. Adcox said the department needs to replace their gear because it is getting old.
The fundraiser will have a picnic. The fire department is taking preorders for chicken stew at $20 a gallon. Supporters will need to bring their own jugs, but the department said they can deliver free of charge.
The fundraiser will also be selling T-shirts to benefit the local fire department.
