The Eolia Community Fire Protection District is hosting their annual dinner and auction this Saturday, March 29.

The event, which will be held at the Clopton School, will begin at 5 p.m. with a silent auction. Dinner will begin at 6 p.m., with a live auction to follow at 7 p.m.

Tickets will be available for purchase at the door. Advance tickets are available at Eolia City Hall, Elements of Design, Baragiola Hardware, Silex, and Headhunter Archery.

The Eolia fire department is comprised of all volunteers. They are funded primarily by voluntary memberships and also by fundraisers such as the dinner auction and smaller events like BBQ’s and car washes. The department is not tax supported.  Proceeds from the fundraising events go towards upgrading trucks and equipment, firefighter training and provide awareness within the community.
