Cox's Store VFD celebrates 50 years with fish fry

LAWTON, Okla._The Cox's Store Volunteer Fire Department is celebrating 50 years of service with a fish fry Saturday and everyone is invited. 

This is the fire department's 19th Annual Fish Fry fundraiser, and they've pulled out all the stops for the big anniversary. In addition to the fried fish, cat fries and coleslaw, this year will also include a car show, live music, an air evac demonstration, auctions and a raffle for a colt 1911.  

The meal is free but they are accepting donations that will go toward general operating costs--which chief Jody Dreves said includes expanding the fire station and purchasing a new rescue truck.

"We put a rescue truck into operation in approximately 1993 or 1994, and hat’s when we started serving our community medically. The box that we have is the original box that we started using. We've replaced the cab and chassis one time, and it's time to replace it again. So, we're hoping to go with an all new vehicle this time and to restock it and start fresh all over," Dreves said.

The frying and fun will start at 11 a.m. at the fire department located at Highway 65 and Rogers Lane and run until 6 p.m.
