Russell Firemen Ham Supper

On April 9 from 4:30 - 7p.m. at the Russell Community Building, the Russell Firemen will be holding their annual Ham Supper.  This is a great chance to help out our local fire department by supporting them in this fund raiser.  Without these volunteers our town would be vulnerable to fire and safety.  They are here for us, now it is our turn to be there for them.

The Russell Fire Department is appreciative of the support given to them by the entire community recently at their annual ham supper.  They are much more able to carry out their responsibilities with the support of the community.

Russell News Committee Meeting at the Museum
