2 The Glenville Democrat/ Pathfinder November 4. 1976 Support fire fund drive That "firebell in the night" is one of the most terrifying sounds there is. However, Gilmer Countians can be sure that whenever the fire alarm is sounded their courageous Gilmer County Volunteer Fire Department will be there to respond. Those volunteers who stand by to aid you at anytime and in any weather are now conducting a fund drive. The firemen have already collected $5,405, but have set a goal of $8,000. This is the minimum amount to insure that operating and replacement costs are covered for the upcoming year. The fire department's 40 members have answered more calls than normal this year. They've answered 48 calls so far, whereas in most years they only average about 35 calls. They've been called to 20 structural fires (houses, trailers, etc.}, 18 brush fires (12 in April}, six vehicle fires and four other calls. You can insure they'll be ready to continue their vital role in the county by donating to any fireman or sending a contribution to Gilmer County Volunteer Fire Department, Box 255, Glenville. 70-year subscribers To The Editor I am enclosing picture and announcement of our 70th wedding aniversary and ask you to please announce it in your paper.
