Warrenton Moose Lodge members donate $6,000 to the Fauquier County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association.
The Warrenton Moose Lodge recently presented the Fauquier County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association a check for $6,000 from proceeds of the lodge’s annual Charity Car Show on May 18.
In its 5th year, the event has benefitted many local organizations, including the Fauquier Family Shelter Services and Shop with a Cop Program.
Steve Wright and Tom Marable accepted the donation on behalf of the Fauquier County Volunteer Fire and Rescue Association, presented by event organizer Chrisi Radcliff.
“Donations such as this will go a long way,” said Mr. Marable, president of the association.
Mr. Wright explained that the funds will help the association with volunteer recruitment and retention, consistent challenges.
The Fauquier Historical Society also received a donation to assist with the restoration of the 1966 Ford Galaxy, recently added to the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office fleet. The vehicle was acquired to recall a landmark day when the sheriff’s office received a donation of its first vehicle, a 1965 Ford sedan, painted brown with an off-white top and fitted with a police radio, lights and siren.
The Loyal Order of Moose is a community-driven organization.
