Taking stock of blessings
SoVaNow.com / December 27, 2012Dear Viewpoint:
Thank You All From Triangle Volunteer Fire Department - It is the time of year when we all take stock of our blessings. We at Triangle fire department realize how lucky and blessed we are to have so many supporters throughout the year - every year.
We have many fund raising activities during the year and none of them would be profitable without the support and help of the people of Halifax and surrounding counties. Whether it is a person who buys a raffle ticket or an organization that sponsors our haunted trail, we know that it is support that keeps our department and others in the county functioning.
There are many ladies in our area that bake pies, cakes and cookies for our bake sales and suppers that are such a help to us and helps with the profit. There are also many people who are willing to give of their time to assist in the many functions of these events.
Our biggest fundraiser of the year is always our haunted trail and the financial support of the sponsors is so appreciated. The willingness of the businesses in our area to support non-profit agencies such as ours is an example of the benefit of living in a small community. People looking out for people make the world a better place to live.
We would like for everyone in the community to know that we will be here to serve you in any way we can. It is our goal to be there for you when you have an emergency. Our fundraisers help to purchase equipment, pay electric bills, purchase fuel for the vehicles and other items to keep our personnel and community safe.
Whether you bought something from our bake sales, purchased steak support tickets, came out to our haunted trail, sponsored the haunted trail, let us use some of your equipment during the haunted trail, sent us a donation or purchased a bulb for our tree of lights, we would like for you to know that your generosity has not gone unnoticed.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the other emergency departments in our county who have been there to assist. Many times the job is too big for just one department to handle, which is when you can be sure that other departments will be there to stand by your side. For that we are grateful.
During this Christmas season, we want everyone to know how much we appreciate you and wish you a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. God bless everyone and America.
For the members of Triangle Volunteer Fire Department
