Along with the food, tickets for a cash raffle will be sold, offering prizes of $300, $200 and $100.

The steak roast benefits the Newcomb Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad. Along with providing fire protection, the squad maintains a full-time paid EMS service. Proceeds raised help offset the cost, and also help supply equipment. The squad has plans to purchase new pagers for the new E-911 system being installed in Essex County, and is considering replacing its 12-year-old ambulance.

Yandon stated volunteers were welcome and needed.

"If we didn't have volunteers that weren't members of the fire department, we couldn't do it. We get tremendous support from the community. Anyone who wants to volunteer an hour or two of their time should call," said Yandon.

People interested in volunteering can contact EMS Captain Holly Bradway at 582-4712.
