Celebration in Honor of Flo Adams To Be Held at VVFD on Wednesday

Florence Adams, member of VVFD Auxiliary
Flo was always in charge of the bake sale table

 The Volente Fire Department lost one of its long standing supporters last week - Mrs. Flo Adams passed away at age 93. Many of you may know her as the smiling face that talked us into that extra calorie from the baked goods table at the annual fish fry.  Or you may have seen her standing next to the new fish fryer that her family donated for her 90th birthday.  Even those who donate blood at the annual pancake breakfast/blood drive may know her as the "clown" giving cookies and juice in the bloodmobile.

Please help us celebrate her life with your shared memories.  The VVFD Auxiliary and the Adams family are hosting a festive celebration and lunch in honor of Flo.  Please join us on Wednesday, July 6th at 12:00 Noon at VVFD for barbecue and joyful memories.
