The Ponder Volunteer Fire Department will be hosting its annual fundraiser today.
This morning’s festivities begin with a parade at 10 a.m. near Ponder High School, followed by an afternoon filled with fun and games at Eddie Deussen Park. Game tickets are 50 cents each and proceeds from event activities benefit the fire department.
There will be a silent auction and barbeque dinner from 5 to 7 p.m. The dinner ticket prices are $12 for adults and $6 for children.
The meal consists of brisket, sausage and ham, beans, potato salad, bread, dessert and a drink.
Proceeds from previous year’s event allowed the department to build a much needed fire house, Andrew Economedes said.
