ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP FUND DRIVE MAILING

Friday, January 16, 2015   On Friday, January 16, 2015, 15 volunteers braved the early morning cold to help stuff envelopes for our annual Lake Harmony Volunteer Fire Company membership drive. The funds received help to offset the increasing cost of operating a volunteer fire company such as replacement equipment, safety gear, fuel and building maintenance just to name a few. We would like to express our gratitude to these individuals because without their help, we could not serve the community.
