The Mathews Volunteer Fire Department held its Fire Prevention Day at Moughons Ace hardware on Saturday, Oct. 17, with the firefighters giving advice about fire safety, how to equip the home and ways to handle a fire emergency. They also welcomed children, showing them around a fire truck and handing out drawstring bags, fire hats and other goodies. Below right, Blake and Kenadee Custer, ages 8 and 6, get their fill of goodies from MVRS members, from left, Rob Hudgins, Steve Rife and Kenny Garrett, while little sister Raegan Custer, 2, gets some help filling her bag from her dad, Kevin. At right is Cal Holaday on the fire truck. The son of Will and Meredith Holaday. Cal is making a serious face because he was told he couldn’t get into the cab of the truck due to COVID-19 restrictions, according to his grandmother, Debbie Holaday.
