The Columbia-Adair County Volunteer Fire Department would like to humbly thank everyone that took time out to attend our Chili Supper, Candidate Forum and live Auction. We would like to thank each of the businesses and candidates that donated an item for the auction. Also thank Dale Hayes and everyone that came out and supported the crusade. By the end of the night we had an attendance of around 300 people and raised around $6,500 to be placed in the 2018 total for the Crusade for Children. The most notable sale item that showed the crowds charitable giving was a country ham donated by Terry Hadley. It sold the first time 14 times with each winner selling it again. It was donated to the fire department and we placed it back on the auction block as the last item of the night. It sold 3 more times with Bro. Ralph Hadley eventually winning it.
Again thanks everyone, there is no way we could do this without you.
