Good Works From Grinnell

by Robert Conroy, CPCU, CIC on November 8, 2013

The Grinnell sub-chapter has a long standing history of providing support to local fire departments.  As a group we are proud to support these brave men and women for all of the service and enrichment they provide to local communities.  Most recently they raised $1,050 and presented that to the Newton Fire Department.  With those funds Newton will purchase a new fire education DVD, and use the remaining money to pay for the installation of smoke detectors in the homes of people with a hearing impairment.   Pictured are:  Adam Moore, Sub-Chapter President; Jarrod Wellik, Newton Fire Chief; and Mark Johnson, Sub-Chapter Secretary-Treasurer.
