Gayville firefighters are adapting their fundraisers due to COVID-19 to raise funds to pay off a fire truck, reports Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan.
The new 2021 Tanker/Pumper will replace a 1970 tanker, marking a 51-year difference.
Usually, the fundraising event hosts more than 200 people at a large community-style dinner. For those who ordered meal tickets, they will be able to pick up their meals.
Gayville receives little in tax funds which mostly go to pay utilities and truck repairs. Fundraising efforts for a new truck began five years ago, with hopes of completion this year.
