Thanks for help during brush fires

— — We the volunteers and board of directors of the Oakvale Volunteer Fire Department would like to say thank you to all who helped, donated, prayed and supported our department during the last several brush fires at Halls Ridge, Wimmer and Southern Hollows in Oakvale.

Thanks for the pizza, M&M Grocery for the food, McDonald’s for the burgers and pies and a big thank you to all the volunteer  fire departments — Athens, East River, Green Valley, Rich Creek, Glen Lyn and Division of Forestry of West Virginia. We know personally from all the testimonies from the communities involved that everyone and everything were greatly appreciated. I know all these departments would be glad to talk to interested persons who would like to be a volunteer.

Please contact your county commissioners to show support to all the Mercer County volunteer fire departments.

Victor Lester, Chief OVFD

Morris Clyburn, secretary-treasurer
