The Lexington Volunteer Fire Department, in conjunction with the Lexington Lions Club, held their annual fundraiser last Saturday night. The sold-out crowd is seen above. ALL PHOTOS BY MIKE ORGAN.
Ed Parker and Rebecca Lewis accepted two different plaques on behalf of their brother, JW Parker, who was a long-time donor to the LVFD and a “regular” at this event each year. The award was given posthumously, as JW passed away earlier this year.
Preparing the sides for the fundraiser, for the 28th consecutive year, was Erna Patschke (not shown). Erna “supervised” Sharon Schimank (left) and daughter Linda Patschke as they helped her prepare the meal. Also helping, but not pictured, was another daughter, Helen.
