Station fundraiser rescheduled

NORMAN — A fundraiser for the Noble Fire Department has been rescheduled due to inclement weather earlier this month. The fundraiser is set from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for June 29 at Noble Fire Station No. 1, 119 N. 2nd St. in Noble.

Jarrid Matlock, operations specialist, said that small fire departments receive fewer grants than larger departments, so Noble does fundraising on its own.

The fundraiser, held in conjunction with the Hampton-Noble Masonic Lodge No. 291, will benefit the Noble Fire Department with funding to provide Firefighter Personal Protection Equipment, station upkeep and fire apparatus equipment upgrades.

The public is invited to join the Noble Fire Department to see the fire trucks while enjoying bouncy houses for children, hamburgers, hot dogs, face painting and a dunk tank as well as family photography specials.

Admission to the event is free as are the bouncy houses. Tickets for food and the dunk tank are $1 the day of the event.

A raffle will be held with the grand prize being one free meal a week for a year donated by Tiffany’s restaurant. Photography by Lorenz is offering a special where $100 from each $200 family sitting booked through Aug. 31 will be donated to the fire department. Noble Hampton Masonic Lodge will match the funds raised during the event.

“As a small fire department, the city helps support us and we like to raise money to help support the house,” Matlock said in an earlier interview. “It’s a good opportunity to get out in the community and show the public what we do.”

The Noble Fire department wishes to thank its other event sponsors including Super C Mart, C.M.K. Amusements, LLC and Wolf Ink and Toner.

For more information or to make a donation, contact the Noble Fire Department at 872-3030. To book a sitting with Photography by Lorenz to benefit the fire department, call 517-2848.
