Local Farm supports the Dunkirk Fire Department with food donation

Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department, INC via Facebook

Dunkirk, MD-The Dunkirk Volunteer Fire Department would like to thank the Smart Family and their business, Sassafras Farms for their extremely generous and heaping donation to the department. While Sassafras Farms originated in Huntingtown, they recently expanded their business into Dunkirk and have become quite a friendly neighbor to their local firehouse.

Throughout the last week, we have had a number of members representing our department in Ocean City for the Maryland State Fireman’s Convention. These members attended the Memorial Services for our fallen Brothers and Sisters, took part in numerous legislative seminars and even participated in some hands-on training sessions.

Knowing that many of Dunkirk’s “non-live-in” members would be replacing the “live-in” members for the week due to the convention, Sassafras Farms reached out to the Dunkirk Firehouse and offered to supply food for the week. A generous donation of meats including steaks, hotdogs, and burgers, has been keeping the members fed throughout the past four days…however, today was a huge treat. Sassafras Farms was up at the crack of dawn working hard and smoked enough of their famous, mouthwatering brisket to feed 25 members for dinner-it was even delivered hot and ready to eat by Curk Smart himself.

We now can say without a doubt that we have had the fortunate opportunity to experience the best beef you can possibly get your hands on. Everything Sassafras Farms has done for the Dunkirk Volunteers is greatly appreciated-and we Thank-You!

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
