The Flandreau Fire and Rescue will start selling its calendars that have weekly drawings as a department fundraiser.
The department has ordered 1,000 copies and will sell them for $40 each until they are gone. Each week there is a drawing among those who purchased the calendars and the prizes alternate between a gun one week, a mix of shotguns and rifles, and cash the next week. There also are special drawings at Christmas and Easter.
“It’s been an absolutely phenomenal fundraiser for us,” said Holist Sutton, truck captain. The department has been able to buy equipment and rigs, including a boat for water rescues.
Calendars are available from any firefighter and at Krull’s Garage, First National Bank, Cenex, Tractor Supply, Mad Mary’s, 361 Insurance and Blue Jays.
