Thank You AG Coun­try Propane

Catron Courier - - Front Page - by Sher Brown

Ev­ery Fourth of July, towns­folk from miles around help sup­port Que­mado Fire and EMS by at­tend­ing our BBQ. And ev­ery year, we’ve been very grate­ful. This year, some­thing won­der­ful hap­pened. Jimbo Wil­liams, of Ag Coun­try Propane, ap­proached us and said, “I’d like to pay for ev­ery­one’s meal this year.” That act cre­ated a domino ef­fect. There were a few peo­ple who just said “Thanks” and ac­cepted the free meal, and that’s okay. Most peo­ple, on the other hand, said, “Thanks, Jimbo,” then took the money they were go­ing to use to buy the ticket and filled our do­na­tion boots. Some do­nated well be­yond the ticket price. We be­lieve the spirit of giv­ing filled the fire hall that day. The Boy Scout troop that won the grand prize from the pa­rade turned their win­nings over to the fire depart­ment. The Que­mado Aux­il­iary con­tin­ued the giv­ing by do­nat­ing the pa­rade en­tries, and other com­pa­nies were inspired to make large do­na­tions also. Even though all the fire fight­ers and EMTs are vol­un­teers, it still takes a lot of money to pro­vide emer­gency ser­vices to the com­mu­nity. It takes more money than we re­ceive from the gov­ern­ment each year. For ev­ery penny that the com­mu­nity do­nates to help us do our job, we are more ap­pre­cia­tive than we can ex­press. So, “Thank You, Jimbo and Tr­isha of Ag Coun

try Propane” for get­ting the

ball rolling.
