Thank You So Much…

On January 6th, Millville Fire Department fought a working fire in a vacant home (see post https://www.millvillefire.org/?p=3563).  During the time of the fire, the temperatures went from 12 F to 5 F.  BC Larry Fawcett went to Riverview Plaza Wawa to get coffee for the firefighters.  When he went to pay for it, he was told it had already been taken care of by Norma Johnson.  

Thank you, Ms. Johnson… your generosity was greatly appreciated by all the firefighters and officers on scene that night.
