Members Of The Poynor Volunteer Fire Department Help Katrina Victims

Members of the Poynor Volunteer Fire Department held a cookout to help victims of Hurricane Katrina. There were hamburgers, hot dogs and frito pies. The fire department purchased the food. Members of the community then bought the food from the fire department. The money raised will go towards hurricane relief.

"We just wanted to help the victims," said Linda Perry, organizer. "I've got family in Mississippi and we just thought this would be a great way for the community to have a chance to give."  The Poynor Fire Department raised about $500.
