Lions check to fire dept

At their Nov. 3 dinner meeting, the Granville Lions Club hosted members of the North Granville Hose Company. The firefighters demonstrated the latest in technical equipment used in the fire service, and discussed current important issues in firefighting. The Lions Club invited the firefighters because they had learned that the fire company was raising funds to purchase new air packs for their members, and that they were $3,600 short of the money needed. Members of the Lions Club voted to donate the needed $3,600 and presented the fire company with a check at the meeting. Pictured are Linda Ellingsworth, president of the Granville Lions Club; Phil Weaver, treasurer of the Granville Lions Club Foundation; Scott McCullen, chief of the North Granville Hose Company; and Tim Tipton, interior firefighter with the fire company.
