Rhinelander, Wis. (September 30, 2018) Peoples State Bank recently hosted its second annual Police and Fire Appreciation cookout at its 1255 Lincoln Street, Rhinelander location.
Around 300 brat baskets were sold with donations collected totaling over $1,500. Donations were split equally between the Rhinelander Fire Department, Rhinelander Police Department, and Oneida County Sheriff’s Office. The departments will be putting their money towards things such as the Oneida County Dive Team, firefighter rescue equipment and the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) program.
The cookout was held to recognize and show appreciation for personnel who are responsible for keeping our communities safe. “We love being able to hold an event that not only brings the community out to support our local police and fire departments, but to also allow families to meet the men and women who put their lives on the line for us every day,” said Mortgage Loan Officer Brandon Karaba.
Those who attended had the chance to view emergency vehicles on display and talk with local firefighters and law enforcement personnel.
Thank you to the following partnering businesses for their donations to help make the event a success: Bessey’s Meat Market, Holiday Gas Station, Rhinelander GM Auto Center, Trig’s, Veterans Ceremony – Union Grove Cemetery, Inc., and YMCA of the Northwoods.
