On October 4, 2014, we are holding our second annual “Help the Heroes: Buzzi Bash”. This event will again benefit the five volunteer fire departments in Nolan County (Maryneal, Nolan, Blackwell, Roscoe, and Lake Sweetwater) with all of the proceeds divided equally among the departments. Last year, the Buzzi Bash was able to raise $10,000 which was divided five ways and donated to the local fire departments. We hope to double that figure this year. We are constantly aware of the great value that the services our area volunteer fire departments give to every individual in our community. Many of us would have lost a great deal had they not been protecting us from the flames during the summer of 2011. These volunteers are only able to do this through donations and fund-raisers. We would like to ask that everyone in the community stand with us to support them and thank them for their service. This year’s event includes a cook-off with several new categories and entry options and even more activities for the whole family than last year. Everyone is invited!
