The 3rd Annual Bill's BBQ Bash benefiting the Merkel Volunteer Fire Department this weekend was a huge success. They had a silent auction, a gun raffle and lots of live entertainment by local artists such as Callahan Divide and Morgan Rutherford. Bill's BBQ bash is a way to give back to the Merkel VFD and help them to pay for fuel and safety equipment. They were able to raise $5,000 their first year and $10,000 their second year. Paul Martin told us he thinks this year will bring even more.
