To the Editor,
The Carroll County Volunteer Fire Department Inc. would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for all of the support and donations, particularly over the past few months. We recently conducted a fundraising campaign to replace some of our turnout gear. A number of our members were using gear that is outdated and worn out. Rex Energy and Rick and Carol Hannon both made sizable gifts to the department and many citizens made important contributions as well. Each of these donations is greatly appreciated and when combined together will help to keep our volunteer members better protected and safer as they serve the Carroll County communities.

Several weeks ago, thanks to funding from the County Commissioners, our department was able to replace the aging and leaking roof on our Station. Nathan & Mary Ann Miller organized two crews of local Amish construction workers, who donated all of their time and labor to install the new metal roofing on our building. We want to wholeheartedly thank them for their donation of time and experienced labor which made quick work of the project.

Our department can’t thank the local community enough for their continued support of all of our fundraising efforts. All of our local fire departments in the county play a key role in the protection of the citizens of Carroll County and their property. Thank you and please continue to support your local departments.
