The Bear Creek Fire Department is ready to party!

They’ll hold their annual meeting Saturday at 5 p.m. at their firehouse, 1510 N. 106 Lane, Kaw City.

The meeting will start with a baked potato bar and Frito chili pies from the Newkirk Masonic Lodge. A short business meeting will follow. Elections will be held for the two open board positions.

While there is no admission charge, the FD will happily accept any donations, and residents may pay their annual dues of $50 for 2017.

Money raised at the annual meeting will be used for fire equipment and repairs.
