Barbecue benefits MVFD

By Terry Harpole For the WPT

MABEN — The Maben Volunteer Fire Department had a fundraising barbecue May 5 on the old lot on Highway 15 that was once the location of Tenhet Real Estate and a car lot.

Firemen and others who met there started the hogs cooking around 6 the evening before, and it was cooked slow the old-fashioned way.

They sold barbecue plates as a fund-raiser for the fire department. The Maben City Board does support the fire department, as does the Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors.

Even with this support, the Maben VFD does have a few fundraising projects from time to time to help with operational costs.

People are reminded to be aware of the times they have other projects, and to be ready to support this group of men and women who do such a good job serving our community.
