The Montgomery Volunteer Fire Company has announced that the Community Aid Box will remain at the Carnival Grounds. The department said that a number of the bins have been pulled from the local area so it’s good news. The Fire Company is compensated for every pound of clothing that is donated. So as you empty out your closets, you can help the fire company.
If you have a fire hydrant on your property, the fire company would like to remind you to please shovel three feet of clearance around them whenever there are deep snows.
