Port Henry Fire Department 13th annual benefit dinner.

To the Times of Ti:

On Monday May 7, 2012, the Port Henry Fire Department held its 13th annual benefit dinner sponsored by and held at Kings Inn. On behalf of the officers and members I would like to acknowledge and thank Kevin and Michele Flanigan, owners of Kings Inn, for their sponsorship of this event as they generously donated back 100 percent of all ticket sales. Through their generosity the department has realized nearly $20,000 over the past 13 years. This money will go toward upgrading equipment for our Cold Water Rescue/Dive Team.

We would like to thank the staff at Kings Inn who volunteered their time — Jen Tesar, Corey Fleury and Betty O’Connor. We would like to also acknowledge our core of volunteers that kept the event running smoothly. They include Sue Bryant, Patti Edwards, Marie Bryant and John Valenti, who provided photos of the event. As always we had the support of our Ladies Auxiliary which included Jeannie Ball, Laura Muniz, Rachael Cutting and Lidia Crisan, who helped with deserts and our 50/50 raffle.

Our thanks to Wal-mart, Sam’s Club and Stewarts Shops. A special thanks to Ms. Susan Law Dake, president of Stewart’s Foundation, for their generous donation again this year.

As always, we thank the residents of Port Henry and surrounding communities who came out to support our cause so generously.
