Members of the Monkton Volunteer Fire Department held their Fifth Annual Grass Drag fundraising event recently. The event helps support firefighting and emergency equipment needs that the department budget is unable to cover. This year, thanks to suggestions from local residents, firefighters added a "mud bog" for ATVs and trucks.
MVFD members thanked several businesses and individuals, including the Monkton Women's Auxiliary, for their support and donations.
Also cited for their support of the MVFD were Chief David Layn, Assistant Chiefs Curtis Layn and Kevin Alexander, Capt. George Roy, Capt. Rick Gomez, retired Capt. Paul Meader, retired Capt. Bill Van Steamberg, Lt. Tracy Clark, Lt. Bob Howard, Buck Bennett, Dan Bennett, Darrel Duffy, Mike New, and Rick Wolak.
