EVFD Building Fund Drive Surpasses $15,000

The Elgin Volunteer Fire Department (EVFD) recently announced that they have opened an account at the Bank of Elgin for those wanting to help with the costs of the new equipment building.
To kick off the fund drive, the EVFD itself has donated $5,000 and the Elgin EMTs have matched that donation with $5,000.
More donations have been received from Hoefer Land & Cattle, Gerald & Lois Miller, Michael Moser and Delbert Niewohner.
That brings the total so far to $15,775.
The goal is to raise $50,000 to help offset the costs for the new building.
The new building, being built on the now-demolished old fire hall site adjacent to the current building, will house trucks, the ambulance plus other necessary equipment, easing the congestion which existed for crew members.
With the demolition done, work to clean up and prepare the site is nearly complete. Once actual construction starts, the building is scheduled to be completed in 120 days.
That means by the end of summer the community of Elgin will have a new fire storage building which will better serve the needs of the community and rural areas.
A list of names and running total of donations will be published in the Elgin Review as donations are received.
