Thank you all so much for your wonderful support! It's truly a blessing to have a supportive and kind community such as Buckhannon. I read in a different town's topix of several person bashing and belittling a Volunteer Fire Dept. It warms my heart to come back to the Buckhannon topix and receive such praise!

The community itself is the reason we do what we do. We protect the ones we love, and we love our community.

Thank you all, and God bless
