Lakeside VFD
to hold pulled pork dinner
The Lakeside Village VFD Ladies Auxiliary will hold a pulled pork dinner Saturday, September 14, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the air conditioned Lakeside Village Fire Hall/Community Center.
The menu will include pulled pork sandwiches, potato salad, baked beans, dessert and drink at a cost of $11 for adults and $5 for children 10 and under.
“The residents of the Lakeside Village VFD coverage area are so very supportive of our efforts to raise the funds to keep the VFD and fire hall up and running that we really try to give them their money’s worth with the meals we offer as well as serving the foods that seem to bring them back time after time.  Serving great food is our way of showing our appreciation for their support,” said Auxiliary President Vicki Johnson.
The fire hall is located at 136 CR 1275, just east of FM 56 and FM 927 intersection, next to the water tower.
Both the firefighters and the Ladies Auxiliary always need new volunteers to help keep the community safe.
