Darn, I didn’t win a ham or a turkey at the Anamoose Fire Department Turkey Bingo Fund Raiser last evening. But 15 lucky people did-2 of which won both a turkey & a ham. Plus there were 7 raffles where people won a purse, toy tractors, mirror, etc. I took a picture of Tyler Snyder from Harvey, as he was so exited when he won the John Deere precision tractor from Gooseneck Implement. I found out this morning from Fire Chief Brent Weninger that when Tyler was looking at the tractor he said to Mark Engen “I”m going to win that tractor”-& he did! Thirty merchants donated door prizes that were given away after the bingo. Brent said the proceeds from the benefit will go for operating funds.
There are 26 on the Fire Dept. roster, & there are 4 openings. Fire fighting training is done one time a week by Andy Melton & was twice a week this winter.
Next week the squad will be trained in Hazmat (hazardous training) by the state.
