Rescue Squad Puts Food on the Table
The Hardeman County Rescue Squad held its annual smoked ham and turkey fundraiser for the Thanksgiving holiday. Money raised from the 87 turkeys and 104 hams sold this year will go towards new equipment and training for the rescue squad that is strictly a volunteer force.
After smoking for a total of 14 hours, rescue squad members met at Walmart at 7 a.m. to take them off the smoker, wrap them in foil, and organize them for patrons to pick up at 8:30. Members stayed until noon on Thanksgiving Day so everyone was able to receive their turkey or ham, this made for a long turkey day.
