Editor, the Advocate:
Thank you to all who contributed to making our annual Inez Volunteer Fire Department fundraiser a huge success.
Special thanks to ladies with "friends of the Inez VFD" who baked hundreds of kolaches, sausage rolls, cookies and cakes.
Thanks to: Beth Knezek and her crew of ladies who organized the live auction, making this year's the best ever; the band Texas Ride for providing at no cost the music for our free dance; and Slade Stary Catering for the delicious chicken-fried steak meal.
Thanks to all who opened their pocketbooks and contributed to our cause. The Inez VFD is looking at purchasing a large-capacity water tanker truck that will allow us to provide better fire fighting capabilities to our community and surrounding areas. This tanker can exceed $200,000, but with the help from government grants, the county, charitable organizations and fundraisers, our department will continue to equip itself with reliable apparatus to meet the needs of our rural community.
Inez Volunteer Fire Department, Inez
