Your generosity has meant a great deal to me and the Chesaning-Brady Fire Department. The outpouring of concern and support has renewed our faith in the importance of our service to the community.

Thank you again on behalf of myself and the Chesaning-Brady Fire Department.

Fire board offers thanks for golf outing

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Chesaning-Brady Fire Department and all of the firefighters, we would like to extend our sincere appreciation to Brian and Carol Amman of the Back Forty Bar and Grille, along with their staff, for sponsoring the benefit golf tournament at Twin Brooks Golf Course on Aug. 22. A donation of over $1,000 was presented to the department and will be put to good use for needed equipment replacement and upgrades. Thanks to Twin Brooks and all who participated as well as individuals and businesses who donated prizes.

We are humbled by this wonderful donation. We appreciate the support of our community by Brian and Carol Amman. We applaud them along with all who participated and made this event possible.

The men and women who serve the Chesaning-Brady area through the local fire department are deeply grateful.

Hunter safety class was a success

Dear Editor,

Just recently, the St. Charles Wolverine Sportsmen’s Club completed a very successful hunter safety class with 44 students taking our class.

We had 25 students get 100 percent on the test with 10 more students getting 98 percent.

Our average score for the 44 tests was 97.682 percent.

Congratulations to Elizabeth Adelberg who was selected as our top student and received a gun cleaning kit.
