The Central Middlesex Volunteer Rescue Squad (CMVRS) and Auxiliary kicked off its annual fund drive on Saturday with a fish fry at the Water View Firehouse. After the event the squad and its auxiliary issued the following thanks:
Members of the Central Middlesex Volunteer Rescue Squad and Auxiliary thank everyone who came out this past Saturday evening and helped us kick off our annual fund drive. Our fish dinner was a success and we thank you for attending and for your take-out orders.
We want to say a special thank-you to members of the Upper Middlesex Volunteer Fire Department of Water View and its auxiliary for allowing us to use their facility, and also for all of your help and support for the evening.
We also want to thank all who made monetary donations to the squad and for all your support in purchasing raffle tickets for the golf cart donated by Unique Golf Carts of Urbanna.
Thank you to the farmers and private growers who donated fresh cucumbers and fresh tomatoes for our dinner. They were very tasty.
We also thank Angelo of Colonial Pizza for his kind donation, for all the help from Urbanna Market and the Southside Sentinel, to our local radio stations, and to Craig Hall and EASI Printing for featuring our ads.
The evening would not be complete without thanking our cookers, Tony Brooks, Craig Cradlin and Chris Warriner. Job well done. We also thank all of our extra helping hands for the evening who helped serve and clean up. Great job.
Our new rescue squad unit was on display for the public to see along with our rescue squad personnel in their new navy blue shirts. You all looked very nice.
And finally, our Central Middlesex Volunteer Rescue Squad Auxiliary appreciated every thing that was done to make our fund drive a success. Even the weather turned out great.
We thank you for your continued support.
