The communities of Shawville and Clarendon came together on Saturday night, raising money for their fire department and honouring a long-time member of the crew.
The Shawville Lions’ Hall was packed late into the night on April 21, when the annual Shawville-Clarendon Fire Department’s Firemen’s Ball took place.
The dance at the hall serves as an annual fundraiser, contributing to various projects that the department chooses to focus on. Their recent efforts have gone towards purchasing the station its own air compression machine, for the oxygen tanks used by the crew.
“I have the air-filling station ordered,” said Chief Lee Laframboise. “This should finish off the rest of [those costs].”
With that goal at the finish line, the department is looking towards their next big purchase – a new truck.
