Dayton Daze 2018 an overwhelming success

Print Article

The Chief Cliff VFD/QRU would like to thank everyone who contributed goods, services, time and money to make the 27th annual Dayton Daze celebration a whopping success! We brought in more than $14,000 which included raffle ticket sales throughout the summer, silent auction, car show, sales of merchandise, food, beverages, 50/50 and cash donations during the event. Without the support of our communities and business people, we would not have been able to raise these funds, which will go toward the purchase of the used 1999 tender we have targeted for this year’s fundraising.

Since adding our QRU in 2003, the number of calls to which our department has responded has quadrupled. Because the CCVFD/QRU is organized as a Fire Service Area, we have limited tax monies available ($100 per taxpaying household), which barely covers the costs of maintaining firefighting equipment, insurance, supplies & utilities for the four fire halls located throughout the 66 square miles comprising our FSA. For this reason, we have also sent out letters to taxpaying homeowners in the Chief Cliff Fire Service Area and have received many generous donations from them as well. We are thankful for ALL of the donations, along with all the help we received to make Dayton Daze a huge success!

We’re already looking forward to next year’s event on Sept. 7, when we will celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-Day with our theme: “Dayton Daze Honors D-Day!”

— Zoe Lilja, Dayton Daze director
