  • Relay for Life Friday, May 15, 2009

    The American Cancer Society's Relay For Life is Friday, May 15. This is their annual national fundraiser. WRCVFD volunteers will be setting up at the Renaissance tent (formerly Marshall Voss Health Care). WRCVFD will be located immediately on the left upon entering the faculty parking lot (the lower parking lot) of Roane State Community College.

    Volunteers will need to be there by 5:15 PM if possible. If others can come later when they get off work that is fine. Volunteers do not have to stay the entire time. Please dress neatly and if possible wear some type of WRCVFD clothing such as t-shirt, dress uniform, or cap if you have it.

    Volunteer firefighters should bring fire gear in case WRCVFD gets a call. Please let WRCVFD chaplain Bruce Foster know if you are planning on helping by emailing bruce_em805@bellsouth.net or calling at (865) 466-9147.

    Most volunteers' lives have been touched by cancer and so has the Department.

  • WRCVFD Yard and Book Sale

    The West Roane County Volunteer Fire Department held its annual Spring Yard and Book Sale on Friday and Saturday May 8th and 9th from 7:00 AM to dark both days at Station #1 in Rockwood, TN on Pumphouse Road. Volunteers performed all tasks, including pickups of donated items, signage, cleanup, decorations, publicity, and staffing the yard sale. Many thanks to all who helped through donations or volunteering.

    A large part of the annual WRCVFD budget comes from donations so community support for the Yard Sale is much appreciated.

Yard Sale May 8-9
