NEWBOLD - Hundreds of people took time to visit the Newbold Fire Department Saturday for their annual picnic fundraiser.
The event featured plenty of food, raffles, face painting, and live music. This was the 49th year for the event.
"We appreciate the fact that they want to come and support us and enjoy the atmosphere and the food and also help the fire department's activities," said Newbold Fire Chief Mark Fetzer.
The funding from the picnic has funded things like the department's drone that they use for search and rescue. People could see drone demos throughout the day; they could also meet a search and rescue K9.
One member of the fire department said this year's crowd looked like it could be one of the biggest to date.
