We would also like to thank everyone for their continued support over the last year during the COVID-19 pandemic. We were able to provide over 800 meals for those in need within our community from 3/17/2020 to 5/22/2020. Majority of our drills and functions, such as Chicken BBQs and Boot Drives, had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 as well. We are very excited to move on to 2021 as we do expect our new tanker within the first quarter of 2021. We hope everyone has a great new year as we all move on from this chapter called “2020.”
