Fire department says, ‘Thank you,’ for support of homecoming

The Grantfork Volunteer Fire Department would like to say, “Thank you,” to all of our volunteers, supporters and patrons for attending and endorsing our annual homecoming.

Our fundraiser supports our mission to the Grantfork Fire District by allowing us to attend various training sessions, purchase fire fighting tools and life saving equipment, as well as maintain our trucks and park.

Throughout the year, the Grantfork volunteers are active in training with surrounding fire departments. They also participate at Grantfork school for fire prevention week, host a Halloween party at the firehouse, and bring Santa into town on a fire truck for the Village Christmas party.

The Grantfork Volunteer Fire Department would like to again say, “Thank you for your support.”
