On March 21 the Ransom City and Nevada Township Fire Department, which I am now a proud member of, is hosting a pancake and sausage supper to raise money for a new Jaws of Life hydraulic extrication tool system, which the department desperately needs.
The feed will be taking place from 5 to 8 p.m. in the Ransom Senior Center.
This is for a good cause, so I urge anyone that can to attend this free-will donation event. The food is going to be great, and any money that is donated will be going toward a truly great cause.
I made a flier for the event, which is shown here. I think it looks pretty sweet myself.
And if you’ll notice on the bottom of that flier, there is a special message. See, if you can’t attend the pancake supper, you can still help out the fire department and have the chance to win a great prize.
The Ransom firefighters are also selling tickets for the chance to win a Texas Traeger Grill. Tickets only cost $5, or you can get five tickets for $20. Winners will be drawn Easter weekend on April 4 at the Ransom VFW Dinner. You need not be present to win.
This is a great deal and a superb way to help the fire department, but the best part is you could win a sweet grill!
If you are interested in purchasing tickets, please let me know. I would be more than happy to sell you a ticket or 10.
And if you just want to help the fire department without eating or entering the drawing, donations are accepted and greatly appreciated.
A local fire department and the tools they require aren’t just luxuries towns like to have. They are vital components to a healthy community because fire departments help keep people safe and sound.
Therefore, they should be supported in any way possible, so even if you aren’t from around Ransom, I urge you to donate to the cause by at least purchasing a drawing ticket to win the Traeger. You’ll be doing a good deed and could walk away with a grill worth more than $1,000.
