Rescue Boat effort meets fundraising goal

Thursday, July 5, 2012

Skip Layne, Area Operations Manager for CenturyLink, presented a $500 check to Leah Rouse of North Arkansas Electric on June 29 -- a donation to help the Fulton County Sheriff's Department buy a search and rescue boat. With the donation, the fund balance surpassed its $15,000 goal, after just two months of fundraising. Sheriff Buck Foley can now order the boat, which is needed for a quick response when someone goes missing on the Spring or South Fork Rivers.
