The Sumatra Volunteer Fire Department is growing, and continues
to seek local residents for help.
A recent raffle of a 50-quart Pelican ice cooler, donated by
Taylors Building Supply, raised more than $500 for the department.
Apalachicolas Joe Gander was the winner
The new fire chief, Dakota Boone, was on hand for the presentation.
We want to thank Ken and Kim Fish at Taylors for their
continuous support, as well as Tiffin Furniture and Art Gallery, and Ace Hardware
for their donations, said Jerry Alford, an active member of the department.
He said the department now has about a half-dozen
firefighters, and is looking for more. In Oct. 2020, the department completed construction of a new building.
