Pastor Jay Gilchrist of the Ford River Community Chapel presented Fire Chief Brian Nelson of the Ford River Volunteer Fire Department a check for $1,200 earlier this month. The donation comes from the 9th annual pig roast that was held Aug. 6. To date this is the largest attendance and the biggest donation in the history of this event to support the local fire department.

Ford River Community Chapel was conceived as a church in 1976 whose goal was to serve the Ford River community without regard to official affiliation.
