The Valley City Fire Department will hold their annual smoker Friday evening at the Veterans of Foreign Wars club in Valley City.
The annual fundraiser starts at 6 p.m. and the entrance fee is $10.
â€śWe try to put the money (raised) towards certain equipment we need, smaller items like flashlights and small tools, something that we need that we use quite often,â€ť Fire Chief Gary Retterath said. â€śJust so we can keep up with the equipment, make sure we have the equipment we need.â€ť
During the smoker, the VCFD does raffles and sells bacon, ham, groceries and guns.
â€śAnd thereâ€™s plenty of food to eat,â€ť Retterath said. â€śLots of good fellowship and fun and games to play.â€ť
A pinochle tournament will begin at about 7:30 p.m. also.
â€śCome enjoy good warm fellowship,â€ť Retterath said. â€śItâ€™s going to be kind of a cool night I think.â€ť
