Fireman’s ball raises money for sculpture, scholarship

SHERIDAN — Sheridan Fire-Rescue held the annual Firemens’ Ball at the Sheridan Inn over the weekend. Firefighter II John Syring said this year’s ball was the busiest yet.

In the months leading up to the ball, the firemen sold 172 motorcycle raffle tickets. Proceeds from the raffle will go toward establishing a scholarship fund. The net profit from the raffle has not yet been determined.

Sonia Hoppe won the Harley Davidson in the raffle, while Mat Terry took second place and $500 cash. Allan Trumbull won $250.

The ball also featured a silent auction, which Syring estimates yielded approximately $4,000 for the firemens’ statue fund. SFR has contracted an artist to make a bronze statue titled “Tribute to Tradition,” a piece that features Captain Ed Green, a 26-year veteran of SFR. The statue will be placed outside the fire station.
