Thanks from North Halifax

SoVaNow.com / May 02, 2013

Dear Viewpoint:

The North Halifax Volunteer Fire Department wishes to thank everyone who came out Saturday night for the spaghetti dinner. There was a large turnout and everyone seemed to enjoy the dinner.

We want to extend a special thank you to the Halifax Chastine Home, the Pepsi Company and Halifax Regional Hospital for their donations to the supper. Thank you also goes to the many businesses that gave door prizes. I want to thank the members and non-members of North Halifax Fire Department that worked preparing and serving the food that night, job well done! Thanks!

Sincerely,
Tommy Layne
