Velma Fire Department prepares for fundraiser barbecue

VELMA, Okla._Firefighters in Velma will be serving up barbecue on Sunday for a good cause.

The Velma Fire Department's 11th annual fundraiser event will be held at Chuckwagon Bar-B-Que and Grill beginning at 11:00 a.m. Sunday. Velma fire crews are only taking donations, which will help support the department and, in turn, the entire community.

"The fundraiser benefits the fire department, everything we do throughout the year. We have a lot of events we do, like our school supplies give away. It helps fund our fire trucks and firefighter training," explained Justin Tugmon, a Velma firefighter.

The Velma Fire Department says they have always been supported by the community and look forward to Sunday's event. Last year, they raised nearly $3,500. They are expecting up to 300 people at the event.
