Another Success for Our Fire Department and Our Community!
By Susan Weeks
Sunday, May 26th was a beautiful spring day and a very busy one for volunteers and shoppers. The CLVFD Annual Rummage Sale and Monday Bag Sale with food sales and CLVFD logo item sales sponsored by CL FIRES earned nearly $2600 for the Crystal Lakes Volunteer Fire Department. There was food for hungry shoppers and workers. Buffalo chili, beef chili and pork green chili with corn bread and tortillas were available for purchase. Jane and Jim Tiffin donated the bison meat. Randy Roberts, Jeanette Williams and Susan Weeks prepared the various types of chili to sell. Helen Bowlin provided CLVFD logo items for Chuck Glanz to sell. Mark Weeks entertained the children with fire department stickers, information and the opportunity to try on some fire gear, sit in the fire truck and activate the siren. What fun!
The Crystal Lakes community was once again very generous with all their donations for the rummage sale and we thank all those who donated and shopped! This was another successful event for CL FIRES, CLVFD and the community.
There were many people who volunteered to receive donations, to set up and price the items for sale, to sell food, to work the Monday bag sale and to help pack up. CL FIRES wants to sincerely thank all the above mentioned individuals and also Helen Koller, Sharon Cooper, Susan Vance, Lorraine Fratelli, Jan and Dwayne Sawyer, Shirla and Doug Race, Mike Schrodt, Ray Williams and Joe Jackson. If we have missed anyone in our thanks, we are sincerely sorry.
