HARDIN COUNTY — The West 84 Fire Department is hosting a fall festival Saturday as a way to raise funds for a potentially lifesaving tool and help local victims.
The first-ever event, consisting of food, karaoke, an auction and cornhole will take place at West 84 Fire Department’s firehouse at 21129 Sonora-Hardin Springs Road beginning with a breakfast at 7 a.m.
Michelle Gore, wife of Fire Chief Steve Gore, said the event will last through late afternoon.
Games, vendors of various types, dunking booths, a pedal tractor pull and other activities will continue throughout the day, Gore said.
All funds raised through the event will go to the fire department.
“We’re trying to raise enough money for a thermal imaging camera,” Gore said. “Any funds we raise will be matched by Modern Woodmen of America.”
Gore said she hopes the festival can become an annual event for the department and the community.
Any surplus funds, Gore said, could be used to aid fire victims.
“Everything will be put back into the community,” Gore said.
