Letter: Firefighters appreciative of foundation grants

To the editor:

The Volunteer Fire Department of Van Buren Township Inc. and its executive board would like to express its gratitude to the Brown County Community Foundation for the generous grant of $1,000 to each of the participating Brown County volunteer fire departments.

We would also like to thank the foundation for the $13,000 grant for radios and we would like to thank all of these three departments and all the firefighters for your efforts to acquire these grants.

The residents of your townships appreciate your continued service.

Again, a big thank-you to the BCCF for your continued support and helping our Brown County communities.

Thanks to all,

Van Buren Volunteer Fire Department Inc., Rick Good, executive board president (submitted by Heather Stafford)
