Brownville Fire holding raffle

Article from The Piscataquis Observer, Vol. 164, No. 40, October 02, 2002

BROWNVILLE A black powder inline rifle is up for raffle to benefit the fire department's thermal imaging camera fund.

Tickets are now available for the Black Diamond Thompson Center .50-caliber stainless steel rifle.
Tickets cost $1 each or six for $5.

The drawing will be held Nov. 29.

The fire department, which already has held yard sales, suppers and bake sales, needs to raise about $5,000 more toward its share of the purchase of the $23,000 unit.

The purchase was made possible by a matching grant of more than $11,000 from the Cole Transportation Foundation, according to Chief Patrick Thomas.

Firefighters are now being trained to use the camera, which arrived in July. For information, call 965-2561.
