Letter: Grateful for support
We would like to thank our community for supporting and attending the vendor show at the Piankatank Ruritan Club on Oct. 26. It was a great event with raffles of products donated by vendors. Products were raffled all day with proceeds going to the Mathews Volunteer Fire Department.
A big thank you to the Piankatank Ruritan Club for its kindness and generosity in providing the venue. Thank you to our ad sponsors Dehnert Clarke & Co. PC and Fun & Fit Pools and Spas (Hunters Contracting). We also would like to thank Tatterson Greenhouses for the gift certificate and lovely plant we raffled.
Congratulations to Debra Brennan of Mathews, winner of the $50 customer appreciation prize.
Thank you to the firefighters who helped: Mark Ottarson, Todd Wilson, Jason Rowe, Jimmy Hudgins, and Zack Hudgins. People like them are the reason small communities are so great. Their dedication to the department and community is clear and much appreciated. Where would we be without our volunteers?
Thank you to the ladies auxiliary for their help on Saturday. They did a great job with the raffles and bake sale.
We apologize if we left anyone out. So many people are involved in a fundraising event and we are grateful for each one.
This event would not have been possible without the support of our vendors. Thank you for helping us raise money for the department. For anyone who was not able to join us, but would like to make a donation please send to: Mathews Volunteer Fire Dept., P.O. Box 1130, Mathews, Va. 23109.
