To the editor:

While we are still in the midst of a PAUSE right now, I’m asking that you please remember a group that is not PAUSING, our Volunteer Firefighters.

Talk about those who run toward the flames while others run the other way.

We are encouraged to support our small and local businesses by doing restaurant take out, purchasing gift cards, etc.

Well I’m encouraging you to support the Volunteer Fire Companies.

We know that so many things have been cancelled because of this virus, things like that pancake breakfast you’ve always enjoyed with your friends, that sub sandwich sale where you’ve picked up a couple of subs for dinner, and that pasta night where you’ve never seen so much pasta.

These fundraisers may be cancelled for now but the Volunteer Firefighters are still going strong.

They’ve ALWAYS been there for us, we need to be there for them.

So just slip a note in with your donation saying “thanks for breakfast” or “see you next time,” you’ll be glad you did.

Thanks so much.
