This fancy little cart pulled by two beautiful animals delighted the crowd Saturday during the annual Clover Fire Department’s Fall Festival as did some great looking old antique vehicles.

The Clover Volunteer Fire Department had a banner day Saturday, taking in $21,151 for their efforts. Of that amount they expect to clear about $13,000.

According to Fire Chief Bert Martin, “we really had a good day with the weather being very clear, maybe a little chilly.”

Martin said they sold completely out of stew and almost everything else — hamburgers and hot dogs.

The lucky $1,000 winner was none other than Kermit Wright, who earlier in the day had helped to provide the musical entertainment for the event.

There were five other consolation winners of $150 each — Kelli Douglas, Darlene Downey, Sandra Delaware, Tom Arthur and Dwayne Griles.

Parade winners for the fire departments were Bacon District No. 3 for its pumper, Scottsburg Volunteer Fire Department for the best tanker, Virgilina Volunteer Fire Department for its brush truck and mini pumper.

Winners in the antique vehicle category were David Franklin, first place and Bernard Boyd second.

“We want to thank our sponsors and everyone who turned out to show their support for the department,” Martin said, adding that anyone who still wants to make a donation may do so by mailing their check to the Clover Fire Department at P. O. Box 199, Clover.
