Eagles donate to Clare Fire Dept.
An August event at the Clare Eagles for the Clare Fire Department more than doubled their fundraising goal for the Clare Fire Department, said Clare Fire Chief Jim Chapman Wednesday.
The Eagles organized the special dinner, silent auction and fire safety day with the goal of raising enough money to purchase a back-up camera for the Fire Department apparatus. The Clare Eagles FOE #3977 raised $785.00, enough to purchase not one, but two back-up cameras, and recently presented the check for the equipment to Chapman.
The cameras, thanks to their efforts, have now been installed, he said, and he said he wanted to thank the organization for their time and effort to support the fire department.
