LOCKINGTON — The Lockington Volunteer Fire Department’s monthly dinner will benefit the families of the two boys who died as a result of injuries suffered in a fire in Michigan.
The dinner on Sunday, June 16, will benefit the Black, Caudill and Shank families who tragically lost Landin Caudill, 10, and Dalton Shank, 14, during the cabin fire June 2 in Michigan.
“Their uncle (Tom Black) has been on the fire department for 15 years or more,” said Chief Jon Adams. “This is a family thing for us.
“He has brought the boys to the firehouse several times,” he said.
The barbecue chicken/pork chop dinner will be held at the firehouse, 10363 Museum Trail, from 11 a.m. until they are sold out.
Dinners include barbecue chicken or pork chop, baked beans, applesauce, potato chips and a roll for $8 each. Dinners will be served first come first served and guests may dine in or carry out their meals.
In addition to the dinner, the department will also have their donation boot out for anyone who would like to donate to the family.
“All proceeds from the dinner and the donation boot money will go to the family,” said Adams.
For questions or to order ahead, call Adams at 937-606-0919. The day of the event, calls may be placed directly to the firehouse at 937-773-5341.
