Volunteer firefighters set benefit Oct. 26

Woodward, Okla. — Woodward volunteer firefighters hope that a night of simple dinner and dancing will tempt folks to come out and show their support.

According to event organizer Adrian Woodmansee, doors will open to the public at the Woodward Moose Lodge at 6 p.m., Oct. 26 for an evening of dinner and dancing. Proceeds will go to support volunteer firefighters with equipment needs as well as sponsoring delegates to attend the OSFA firefighter convention.

"Some of the money is also dedicated to the Christmas dinner for the retired firefighters as well as the one for the firefighters on duty on Christmas day," Woodmansee said.

The evening's entertainment will be handled by Disc Jockey Steve Stewart, who, according to Woodmansee, will play all types of music.

"I'm sure a lot of it will be country and western but of some of the younger set wants to get out there and shake a leg, I'm sure he will have that kind of music too," Woodmansee said.

Tickets will include a full meal, sponsored by the Moose Lodge, as well as the entertainment.

"Anyone wanting a ticket just find a firefighter in Woodward. They have the tickets," Woodmansee said. "We hope everyone just comes out and wants to have an easy night of fun and support their local firefighters."
