Dear Editor:

The entire body of the Franklin Twp. Volunteer Fire Co. would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone who attended our recent benefit and to all those who contributed in numerous other ways in support of our Fire Chief, Harry Sweppenheiser, who was seriously injured in a motor vehicle accident on July 22, 2013.

Our company received contributions that ranged from loaves of bread to paper on which we printed our fliers, from spaghetti noodles to raffle items, from change in the “fire boot” to sizeable donations, from parking lot attendants to kitchen and lawn staff. No item, job or need went unnoticed or unmet.

We would especially like to thank our brothers and sisters from the Mt. Zion and Shavertown Fire Companies, whose members volunteered their day to help us staff this event and without whom this would have not have been possible.

The outpouring of love and friendship from our community and surrounding areas was overwhelming and we will be forever truly grateful.

Maureen Oremus

Assistant Chief
