Perrytown Firemen
Roll Out ‘Red Carpet’

by Calvin Bryant - August 21st, 2009 - Roanoke-Chowan News-Herald

Nearly a half-century after the founding of the Perrytown Volunteer Fire Department, the current band of hard-working and dedicated firefighters have moved into a brand new facility.

To help christen the building, the Perrytown firemen are hosting a fundraising meal tomorrow (Friday, Aug. 21). Pork barbecue/fried chicken plates (complete with potatoes, slaw and hushpuppies) will be served from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. and again from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. at the Perrytown Community Building. Plates, eat-in or take-out, are available for a $7 donation. Free delivery will be offered in surrounding towns, including Ahoskie, during the lunch hours.

“We’re very happy to be in our new building and we want to use the occasion to let others see how proud we are of the building,” said Perrytown VFD Chief Bud Lee. “Please come out and join us on Friday. We’ll serve-up a good meal and plenty of Perrytown hospitality.”

I'll be there. Hope you will too. This is a great way to support our community. Plus you might get your picture taken. I will be doing a large photo spread of everyone who is there which will be posted here on the Chowan River Patriot early tomorrow morning.
