Guns ’N Hoses, sheriff versus fire softball game Sunday

Come root for your local heroes!

Presenting the second annual Guns N’ Hoses Softball Game. This event is the sheriff department versus fire, EMS, and Forest Service departments on Sunday, July 17, at 4 p.m.

Pagosa Fire Auxiliary will host this fund-raiser to help support our nation’s heroes with all proceeds going to the 9/11 Memorial to be constructed at Pagosa Fire Station 1 on North Pagosa Boulevard.

The 9/11 Memorial fund-raiser will feature beverages, possibly some snacks, and drawing tickets, with donations accepted as well. The cost for tickets for the drawing are one ticket — $5, five tickets — $10, 10 tickets — $30; with the following prizes: first place — a side of beef, second place?— a whole hog, third place — a mixed meat bundle. All prizes can be redeemed for cash value. The drawing will take place on 9/11/2011.

Thanks to everyone who has helped us raise $8,000 so far. We still need $17,000 to reach our goal of $25,000 in order to keep this project going and have the work completed by the dedication date of 9/11/2011, the 10-year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

So, don’t forget your cash or checkbook and be prepared to root for your favorite team.

If you have questions, want to make a donation with a tax receipt, or participate in the drawing without attending the game, contact Chief Ron Thompson at 731-4191.
