Neighbors, friends and family from Rabun, Macon and Oconee counties will gather Saturday, March 26, at the annual bluegrass and barbecue benefit for the Satolah, Georgia volunteer fire department.
The volunteer firefighters and the hard-working women of the Station 8 auxiliary will begin serving food at 5 p.m., with the music starting around 7 p.m.
Chief James Reed is hoping for a stellar turnout, as the routine costs for properly outfitting just one volunteer takes almost $1,000, costs borne by the volunteers. This family-friendly benefit always has been highlight of spring (and the official start of the trout season) in this part of the tri-state area. “We hope everyone will mark their calendars, and do their best to help – even in these uncertain times,” Reed said.
