Each year the department holds two fundraisers to pay equipment and facility expenses. Our annual and most popular fundraiser is on July 4th each year, with a chicken BBQ, parade, mud volleyball, and a duck race. Our second is our annual reverse raffle. We cook steaks, and people attend at a chance of winning cash, or a trip!
Here in Adena we're just friends helping friends. We thank everyone for their support. We will continue to serve with pride. Thank you.
