Saturday, November 8th, marks the return of the West Macon County Rescue Squad’s Annual Chili Dinner & Raffle. The event is slated to begin at 4:00 p.m. in the squad building located at 3080 Rocky Mound Road, in the western sector of the county. All proceeds will benefit the squad with supplies and training costs.
Established to maintain and protect the people of our county, West Macon County Rescue was organized in August of 1993 at 29 Hawkins & Rocky Mound Road, in an old garage building with no running water and heat. The new building was constructed during the summer of 2012, with the members doing all the interior work.“Our dream came true of a new squad building and we are looking forward to growing in the future,” said Kimmy Warf.
This vibrant group is committed to the preservation and protection of life and property from the effects of fire, medical or hazardous conditions through training education. They are bound by a code of ethics to go above and beyond the call of duty.
The chili dinner will cost $5.00 and that will include the door prize raffle, which you must be present to win. Other raffle tickets are available from members of the squad and the cost of one ticket is $1.00, seven tickets for $5.00 and 15 tickets for only $10.00. These tickets will also be available at the event until 7:00 p.m.
This year’s raffle items include a Remington 770 Sporter Bolt Action Rifle 30-06 Springfield 22” Barrel, synthetic stock, blue finish, with scope, CPC Commodities $150.00 gift certificate, Walmart $50.00 gift card, crock pot, and a country ham. You do not have to be present to win these items.
Entertainment this year will be a concert by John Stevens, of Paris, Tenn., who is an Elvis impersonator. There will also be the popular cakewalk.
Everyone is welcome and you are cordially invited to come and enjoy plenty of good food, along with good entertainment, good friends and good times.
