Auxiliary receives $1,000 donation
Lonnie Mullen (left), Gravette fire chief, receives a check for $1,000 from Bob Bland of Decatur. Bland is auditor of Chapter No. 12 of Woodmen Life in Fayetteville, which made the donation to the Gravette Fire Department Auxiliary. The funds will be used to buy uniforms and protective equipment for 16-to-18-year-old youth in the fire department’s junior firefighter program. Chapter No. 12 had earlier replaced the flagpole at the Gravette fire station which blew down in a windstorm.
