Fundraiser for defibrillators
February 14, 2013 by WLKM
A fundraiser to help the Constantine Fire Department purchase five Automated External Defibrillators is scheduled to take place later this month.
A spaghetti dinner is set for 12:30 to 3 p.m. Feb. 24 at the Constantine American Legion, north of the village on U.S. 131. There is no charge but donations are being requested.
Chief Mike Haydon said the department has raised more than $4,100 of the $ 7,000 needed to purchase the five devices. Two are to be earmarked for the fire department, a pair will be designated for the Constantine Police Department and one for the Constantine Village Office.
There will be a silent auction in addition to the dinner. Members of the Constantine Downtown Brainstormers are asking for items to be donated in the silent auction.
The cost of the dinner will be paid for by donations from the Three Rivers Eagles.
