Anyone that has done volunteer work knows that it takes heart, time and dedication to complete a project with precision and integrity.
The Upper Craig Creek Volunteer Fire Department continues to pursue their passion of creating a great volunteer service for the community as well as many others in Craig continue to support their efforts.
On February 12, they hosted a fundraiser, serving spaghetti, garlic bread, desserts and a drink for only a $10 donation.
“Sure, we made money and had some really nice donations given to us as well,” Chief Shawn Matheney said.
For those who partook of the meal, the Facebook comments said it all: “The spaghetti sauce was the bomb,” and “You did a great job as usual” among many others.
There were so many homemade desserts it was difficult for people to select just one.
Matheney added, “As always, the ladies that donated desserts out did themselves because they were amazing!”
However, Matheney added that once the fundraiser was over and they had cleaned everything up, they decided to have a cornhole tournament.
“The tournament consisted of (I think), ten two-man (or woman) teams, played off in bracket style,” Matheney said. “It didn’t end until like 11 p.m. But I will add that the Chiefs team, (oh yeah, all the teams had a name – LOL), went undefeated and are the champions!”
The UCCVFD carried out their vision, which is “since they work hard, they will play hard too.”
Anyone interested in joining the Fire Department, donating or assisting in their fundraisers can contact Shawn Matheney on Facebook or any of the other members.
“We really appreciate everyone that came out to support us,” they shared. “We are working on a possible chili cook-off and a future gun raffle, and of course, we will host our car show in August.”
