With the COVID-19 affecting this year’s Labor Day festivities the Dillon Volunteer Fire Department opted out of having their annual breakfast/ fundraiser.
The Dillon Elks Lodge stepped in and offered Labor Day breakfast to those headed to the parade Monday morning. Serving around 124 hungry guests. With a mission to give back to the community they felt it was right to donate a portion of the proceeds back to the Dillon Volunteer Fire Department. They also want this gesture to open the door to future fund-raising events.
On Wednesday Sept 23rd Elks Leader Gerald Penn made arrangements to meet with newly elected fire Chief BJ Klose to give him a check. Unfortunately, duty called, and the fire department had to respond with a call. A few hours later they were able to meet back up and Gerald was able to present them with a check for $250.
