BY MELANIE BUCK –
The Potter Fire Department held their annual fundraising fish fry on Saturday, May 6th. The difference this year – they held it in their new 3,000 sq. ft. facility.
The new department includes three bays to hold their equipment, which includes two engines, a tanker, and three brush trucks. It also houses a training/meeting room, an office, and rest rooms, and is wheelchair accessible.
To celebrate their new facility that sits behind the old sale barn in Potter, the crew held a ribbon cutting ceremony at their fundraiser.
The Potter Volunteer Fire Department currently has around 14 personnel, including firefighters and first responders. Their membership in Potter includes approximately 600 people. Membership into the department costs $40 per year. If you’re interested in becoming a volunteer or a member, contact Chief Vernon Wells at 479-243-5377.
