Centennial Valley Volunteer Fire Department Hosts Open House
The Centennial Valley Volunteer Fire Department (CVVFD) Open House and annual fundraiser was on Saturday in Centennial. CVVFD Secretary Nancy Taft says they've been able to raise $10,000 during the three-hour event the past few years. Funds raised during the Open House go towards training and equipment for the CVVFD, which has been serving Centennial for 40 years. I was privilege to be live on location for the Open House and had a great time learning about the CVVFD while snapping some fun photos!
Harold Davis was honored with a Certificate of Recognition for being the longest serving member of the CVVFD. Harold joined as a firefighter the year after the department started, served as Chief from 1976-1996 and is still an active member of the department, filling out state paperwork on a dial-up computer.
With raffle drawings every 20 minutes, a silent auction and donations being taken by the food table, the CVVFD is hoping to have raised enough money to be able to purchase a high-power snowmobile and train some of the newer members of the department. Donations can be made online at cvvfd.com.
