Sponsors helped fire department

-A A +A

I would like to thank sponsors of this year’s Glenda Akers Memorial Cruise‑In.
The morning started like many this summer; cloudy with the smell of rain in the air. It was beginning to look as though we were going to have another down year, but car owners were eager to show their cars.
Overall we had 26 entrants who threw caution to the wind and participated in the car show.
As a result of the public’s generosity, we were able to raise a little more than $2,500 for the Fries Volunteer Fire Department. This is almost double the amount we raised last year.
Thanks to: Sharon Shupe, Charles Moorefield, Jody Burcham,
Matthew Rector, Butch Zaldo, Todd Norris, Bob and Shirley Montgomery, Thomas McKnight, Ricky Pearman, Jim and Daisy Lambert.
We had a few volunteers who agreed to be dunked in the dunking booth for our cause.
Providence District Supervisor John Brewer and candidate for the Grayson County treasurer candidate Stephanie Brewer had fun taking a dunk for our cause.
The fire department kept it cooking with hot dogs, chips and a drink straight off the grill on the sidewalk beside the silent auction table along with live entertainment.
Again, thank you for supporting cruise-in. We hope that next year will be bigger and better, and with your continued support it no doubt will.
