BB ROAD -- At the September meeting of the BB Road VFD and Community Center, votes from the yearly board election were counted. New board members are Wendell Williams, Kenneth Worthy, Tony Roberts and Laverne Cockman.
Dale Johnson and Norma Hufstedler opted not to run for a board position this year. BB Road VFD member Susie Van Camp said Johnson and Hufstedler deserve a big "thank you" for the years they have served and the time they have given to the fire department.
BB Road officers were also elected in September. They are President Wendell Williams, Vice President Kenneth Worthy, Secretary John Keck, Treasurer Earlene Williams, Chaplain Edgar Wilson, Fire Chief Edgar Wilson, and Assistant Fire Chief Dale Johnson. Other board members include Jim McCulley, Wes Conrad, Amos Purcell and Sandy Crews.
The next fundraiser for the fire department will be the annual fall yard sale. It will be Oct. 8 at the VFW building on Highway P in Alton. The hours are 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.
On Oct. 13 the VFD will give away a gun and a baby quilt.
The VFD will hold deer suppers on Nov. 12 and 13. The hours will be 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
The next regular meeting of the fire department will be Oct. 11 at 7 p.m. and there will be a firefighters meeting Oct. 15 at 7 p.m. Both of these meetings will be at the firehouse.
