Whitethorn Volunteer Fire Department is in desperate need of building

On Saturday, Aug. 25, the volunteers from the Whitethorn Fire Department will present a dinner/dance benefit at Whitethorn Construction, 545 Shelter Cove Road, beginning at 3 p.m. Funds are needed for a building to house the fire department’s fire truck.

There will be wonderful raffle prizes as well as some very special auction items.

The delicious chicken, ribs or tofu barrel barbecue dinner will be prepared by the famous Early family of Greg and his two sons, Travis and Todd. There will also be lots of tempting desserts, beer, wine and soft drinks available for purchase.

Entertainment will include three talented Humboldt County bands. Enjoy the rhythmic sounds of local favorites, the Lost Coast Marimbas, who play a variety of handmade marimbas, with a tropical rhythm sound. Also featured will be Doug Cox and Friends. They are sure to be a crowd pleaser. End the evening with the funky rock-and-roll sound of Crossroads.

Barbecue dinner tickets are $25, or you can purchase a special reserved table for eight for $185.

All pre-sold tickets will be entered into a special drawing so get your tickets in advance at Whitethorn Construction.

For tickets or more information call Patty at 986-7442.
