St. Marys Firefighters received a nice surprise from the St. Marys White Tailed Beavers before conducting training last Wednesday night. The White Tailed Beavers were completing their North Star award and they decided that the $400 generated from their bake sale would be donated to the St. Marys Fire Department to purchase needed equipment and supplies not covered by their existing budget.

While visiting the Fire Department, the Beavers noticed the firefighters were practicing for the upcoming Waterball Games to be held in Mitchell on Saturday September 21, 2019 and asked to run through the water spray from the hose. The firefighters gladly accepted their request and angled the nozzles to create the same effect as a refreshing summer shower. “There was not one child that was dry in the whole bunch. They had a great time keeping cool,” Deputy Fire Chief Bent Dundas says.

Fire Chief Richard “Andy” Anderson and members of the St. Marys Fire Department would like to thank the White Tailed Beavers for their generous donation, which will make a big difference in helping support the volunteer firefighters.
