It was back in April, that the community of Edon lost its fire department after a fire in one of the truck bays. No one was injured, but all the fire trucks and nearly all of the gear was destroyed. Now, Community Memorial Hospital of Hicksville is sponsoring a 5K race and walk event on June 27 at Edon’s Walz Park for the fire department. The event will start at 9 a.m., with registration beginning at 8 a.m. T-shirts will be given out to the first 100 participants.
Community Memorial Hospital will also be selling the T-shirts at the firemen’s convention which will be held in Hicksville June 19–20. All profits will go directly to the Florence Township Fire Department.
