I was going to write this story up but the Sulphur Springs Professional Firefighters Association Local 3237 posted a great write-up so I’m just going to share that with y’all! They were gracious enough to let me stop by on Saturday and when I left I was just overwhelmed with pride in our community. I spent two years of my career working with war-time veterans and we should never forget to serve those that voluntarily serve our country. From Sulphur Springs Professional Firefighters Association Local 3237’s Facebook page:
Sulphur Springs firefighters appreciate opportunities to give back to the community. We recently learned about a local family that had received a letter from the city to clean up their property. The resident’s husband is active military and away on deployment. Members from our association, with their family members, gathered at the family’s home today. With personal and borrowed equipment, we gladly helped clean up the family’s property.
We were joined by City Councilman Dan Froneberger and his son, Place 1 council candidate Erica Armstrong and her two sons and a friend, Place 2 council candidate Jimmy Lucas, and Place 3 council candidate Norman Sanders. Equipment was donated by Shane McCormick, owner of McCormick Construction & Roofing, Jared Pickett, owner of Catocon, Inc., and Jimmy Dale and Jamie Fite. Also, Don Bell, owner of Bell Brush Busters, donated his time and a skid loader/brush grinder to clear vegetation.
Thanks to all who helped with this project.
