To the Editor:

The Elmore Fire Department wishes to thank the community for continued support in confirming the purchase of a new pumper tanker truck.

Additionally, we are pleased to announce that an Elmore community member has come forward to generously offer matching money up to the amount of $25,000 to contribute toward the purchase of this new truck. This benefactor wishes to remain anonymous, and is inviting others to contribute to this worthwhile cause.

Donations of any amount make a difference and are always appreciated. We have established a Go Fund Me page where people can donate online. The link to the page is

We have some perks for larger gifts of $100 or more:

• $100, choice of Elmore Fire Department hat, T-shirt or ticket to chicken barbecue or harvest supper.

• $200, two of any of the above options.

• $500, family ticket to harvest supper as well as a shirt and hat.

• $1,000, help the Elmore Fire Department commission the new engine. Take a ride in the new fire truck and spray some water with us at the commissioning party and open house next summer.

Once again, we are grateful for the continued community support of our fire department.
