Many showed their support for local volunteer fire departments this past weekend at the first Help the Heroes Buzzi Bash, hosted by Buzzi Unicem, USA that took place at Newman Park.
This event benefitted the five volunteer fire departments in Nolan County including Maryneal, Nolan, Blackwell, Roscoe and Lake Sweetwater with all of the proceeds divided equally among the departments. There were many activities for members of the community to participate in, including a cook-off.
Pictured are members of the Blackland Boys cooking team that consisted of members of the Roscoe Fire Department. The team was sponsored by the Sweetwater Reporter and The Lumberyard in Roscoe.
Shown are (from left to right) Virg Pruitt, Chad Dornbusch, Keagan Pruitt, Terry Armstrong and Gary Armstrong. The Blackland Boys placed first place in the steak division.
Buzzi Unicem intends to make this a yearly fundraiser taking place every Labor Day weekend.
