During the event, Chief Wood unveiled a plaque dedicating the West Delta Community Center and the Klondike Fire Department building to Edwin C. Slough, Charlie Wayne Trevilion Sr. and Charlie Wayne Trevilion Jr.
Edwin Slough gave a generous donation to the KVFD, but he remained modest when recognized for his contribution to the dedication. “I am very proud of these folks for the work they do and the fine job [KVFD Chief] Jerry Wood has done with this first class building,” said Edwin Slough. “I think we owe them a round-of -applause.”
The KVFD also received many baked goods for the cake auction.
The winner of the 50/50 drawing donated the funds back to the department.
KVFD is also preparing for back-to-back garage sale weekends to try to raise more money to help pay for the fuel they need to continue to respond to emergencies and fires.
