Another Successful Outdoor Drawing for New Franklin & Buchanan Valley

The Buchanan Valley FD & New Franklin FD hosted our annual Summer Gun and Cash Drawing. This event was again a successful fundraiser for both Volunteer Fire Departments. Several weeks of planning and preparation goes into hosting this event as well as our Fall Drawing. On behalf of both departments we want to first thank those who purchase tickets to our Outdoor Drawings. Without your continued support, the event would not exist and continue to grow each time. Secondly all the volunteers for New Franklin and Buchanan Valley who come together with an impressive about of volunteers to make this event run smoothly. I hope I speak for all and say it was a Great day to represent our organizations. And lastly our transfer crews who cover each firehouse, so public safety is not impacted while this event is going on. The winning numbers were posted lasted evening on both our pages, if you missed them click here. Our Fall Outdoor Drawing this year will be September 30, 2017.
