This Saturday, November 5th, marks the return of the West Macon County Rescue Squad’s Chili Supper & Raffle.
The 9th annual fundraiser is slated to begin at 5:00 p.m. at the squad building located at 3080 Rocky Mound Road, in the western sector of the county. All proceeds will go toward new turnout gear.
There will be a chili supper, cakewalk, door prize drawings, 50/50 raffle, and raffle drawings following the cakewalk.
Established to maintain and protect the people in the western section 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. Their dream finally came true when they moved into the new squad building.
The chili supper will cost $5.00 and that will include the door prize, 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 H73 - 270 caliber rifle with scope, several gift cards, two country hams, a Tennessee flag & throw with pillow, and etc. You do not have to be present to win these items.
Everyone is welcome and you are cordially invited to come and enjoy plenty of good food, along with good friends and good times.
