Midway Volunteer Fire Department held its annual Ox Roast fundraiser October 7. Crowds gathered not only for a meal, but door prizes were awarded as well. Chief Jesse Shackleford said the department recently passed inspection, and their Insurance Services Offices rating is at 5/5y. This rating could affect homeowner’s insurance rates, and lower numbers could mean better rates for that fire department’s service area.
MVFD responds to emergencies in the western part of Lewis County. Their annual Ox Roast is held each fall.
