Thu 8-16-2018

(Spirit Lake)-The Spirit Lake Fire Department is holding their annual dance this weekend, KUOO's Becky Thoreson has details:

Spirit Lake Firefighter Annual Dance August 18 

The Spirit Lake Firefighter Annual Dance will be held on Saturday, August 18.

Chief Pat Daly says the event is an important fundraiser for the Department.  "We have a budget, but that doesn't cover everything that we need.  This year, we're trying to raise some money.  The DNR gave us a boat that we can put up on Big Spirit, and we're trying to get lighting and maybe a side sonar and stuff put on it so we can equip it and get it out on the lake so we've got something for rescue up on Big Spirit.  Otherwise, we've got to trailer stuff to get it up there, and we've got a hoist sitting there by the DNR boat, so, they said there's enough room for a hoist there, so we got that in the water already, we're just waiting for a couple of parts to get the boat in there."

He notes that Iowa Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame Inductees The Senders will return to perform for the event.  "We've got them here again this year.  We'll be dancing from 7 to 11."

The Dance will be held at the Dickinson County Expo Center. A free will donation will be accepted at the door.
