Community holds new event to replace this year’s canceled Firemen’s Ball

The cancellation of this year’s Indian Valley Firemen’s Ball caused the local volunteer firemen and the Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce to step up and sponsor a new event called “Come in From the Cold.”

In November Indian Valley Fire and Rescue Chief Jim Hamblin announced that the fire department lost several of its active event organizers and because of this, its biggest fundraiser of the year would be taking a hiatus.

To help ensure the fire department has a successful year despite the cancellation, the replacement dinner and dance has been scheduled for Jan. 11 at 5:30 p.m. in the Greenville Masonic Hall.

Tickets are $25 each and include dancing, hot toddies and “enough hors d’oeuvres to fill your belly,” said volunteer Mavis Summers. A no-host bar will also be available.

An auction will also be held to further increase the donation to the fire department. The proceeds made from the evening will be used to purchase an automated external defibrillator and the training piece that goes with it.

According to the American Red Cross, “Improved training and access to AEDs could save 50,000 lives each year. The Red Cross believes that all Americans should be within four minutes of an AED and someone trained to use it.”

Tickets can be purchased from any local firefighter, Evergreen Market, Sterling Sage or Hunter Ace Hardware.
