A while back, I wrote about a story of inclusion at the Chickahominy VFD Station 10 and their entry in the firedog Across America Heroes contest. And here’s the results, from an email forwarded by Sheila Hebein of the NADS:
I would like to express my sincere thanks to everyone that voted and helped us win the Firedog essay contest. From your votes and support, the Chickahominy Fire Department, Station 10, received a check yesterday in the amount of $141,402.00.
Again thanks for your help!!!
Please forward this on to anyone that may have participated in helping us win.
