Editor, the Advocate:
The Raisin Volunteer Fire Department recently held its annual fundraiser May 10. The event was a success because of the support we received from everyone. The event wouldn't have been possible without all the participation we received from our members, but the credit for making it a success was the support we received from the public, our business leaders around town and the many people, not just from our community but from other communities as well. If not for their support in buying barbecue plates and contributing to our auction and raffle, this would not have been possible.
The fundraisers that volunteer organizations have throughout the year are very important. We could not continue serving the community without the continued support we are given.
On behalf of the Raisin Volunteer Fire Department, we want to sincerely thank everyone who participated in this event to make it a success.
