(Neb.)-Crawford Activities Planned For Firefighter Fundraising
(Crawford)-Several residents in the city of Crawford have joined together to plan a day of fun and fundraising for area firefighters. Michelle Stovern, Crystal Jones and Trish Gortsema coordinated to offer a golf scramble, mud run and activities in the park this Saturday.
Stovern said it originally started with each of them wanting to do something for the firefighters after the recent Region 23 Fires in the area, and they came together to combine them into one day of activities, with the main purpose of raising money for area fire departments who assisted in firefighting efforts.
The day will begin with the golf scramble at 10 am. The 5KMud Run will begin at 4 pm, with registration at 3, 2 miles east of Crawford. Other activities that will be taking place during the day include horseshoes, a hog roast, and being Husker game day, there will also be plenty of football parties.
Stovern said the Frontier Bar will close at approximately 6:30 so she and her crew can get ready for the beer garden at the Crawford City Park. Victory Underground will provide entertainment beginning at 7 pm. According to Stovern, John Victory is a former Crawford Volunteer Fire Department Member, and was very willing to help with the effort. Only those age 21 and up will be admitted to the beer garden, with the small entry fee going directly to the area fire departments. Firefighters will be admitted for free. Stovern said there will be a fireman’s boot at the park for any donations as well.
As of Wednesday, there have been friendly challenges set forth by any of the local businesses, but Stovern said that would be a fun way to help gather funds. She is looking forward to having a day full of fun in Crawford, and with the nice weather forecast, she thinks it will be a great day for everyone.
