I would like to personally thank everybody who participated in and attended the Loyal Valley Volunteer Fire Department’s first ever fund raiser. Wow, how nice it was to see all the support.

Its not easy for a such a sparsely populated area to take on such an endeavor. Its nice to see all of the participation at the monthly meetings and training sessions. I know it is not easy to break away from all the work everybody has to do, it makes for a long day. Lord knows everybody has enough long days already. We sure could use some more young bodies.

This is the third small town fire dept. that I have had the honor to be a member of. And when I say small, I mean Loyal Valley size and not much bigger population wise. And so far this is off to a much better start.

But it would not have happened if not for the persistence of one man. Time, money, energy and the vision. John T. Byerley has given it his all. Thank you John T.
