A letter went out to all town taxpayers encouraging attendance at Plum Lake Volunteer Fire Department’s 27th Annual Spaghetti Dinner Aug. 11, or a donation to the “Gator Fund,” as part of its summer fundraising program, “Help Us Feed The Gator.”
Dale Buss, treasurer of the volunteer fire department, reported that 238 people were served at the dinner and that donations are still coming in.
“Last year we raised about $3,000 and so far this year we’ve received over $9,000. I think folks contributed because we have a clear goal,” said Buss. “Our goal is to purchase a more powerful John Deere Gator and a new Snowbulance.”
