Welcome Fire Department will not be able to have their fundraiser dance this year due to COVID restrictions. They would like to thank the people in their coverage area who have supported them in the past. They ask that donations be sent to the Welcome Fire Dept. Relief Association, Box 373, Welcome, MN 56181. They are proud of the reputation they have as one of the top first responders in the state, and one of the best fire fighters. Donations will be used to purchase emergency response equipment. Since they are a volunteer type department, they would also like to thank the employers of the firefighters for their understanding and allowing the employee to respond to the 70-90 emergency calls each year.
