Thanks to all of the volunteers: Willis and Maria LeJeune, Cathy and Ken Gossett, Sandi and Stewart Billingsley, Vicky and Paul Conners, Darrel Lewallen, Sam House, Rebecca Leach, Bert Legarde, Marvin Voiers, Diana Strong Brevard, Jeanette Williams, Mariel Davis, Cindy Davis, Janette Winters, Edna and Sam Queen and our Chief Mike Fryer.

HIGHWAY TRASH PICK UP
On Wednesday, November 28, 2018, the DMR VFD had their last trash pick up for the year. There were eight volunteers who show up on this horribly windy day. Thankfully there was not very much trash we only had one and a half bags full. The guys took the north side were Marvin, Stewart and Ken. The girls took the south side, Maria, Cindy, Kathy, and myself. Mariel cleaned up around the mailboxes. The guys found the most unusual item which was a sequence of small airplane size bottles of booze. I think they said there was around seven or eight of them.
