Sumatra fire department continues to grow

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
Taylor’s Building Supply, raised more than $500 for the department.
Apalachicola’s 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 Taylor’s 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.

For more information, call Alford at 850-899-6565 or Boone
at 850-643-7386.
