Cambria Care Center award volunteer fire companies
EBENSBURG — Two local fire companies were awarded $2,000 during the first-ever Cambria Care Center Golf Classic held earlier this month at the Ebensburg Country Club.
     Members of the Nanty Glo Volunteer Fire Company were the winning team of a special Firefighter Foursome Flight and received $1,500 for their efforts. In addition, the Conemaugh Volunteer Fire Company won the Best of Show Basket and took home $500 to their company from the event which was organized to raise funds for the Fire School of the Volunteer Firemen’s Association of Cambria County & Vicinity.
     “It was a very good event. The turnout was good, the weather was fantastic, and Cambria Care is very happy to have raised a nice amount for the fire school,” said Cate Planisky, organizer of the event. In addition to organizing and sponsoring the tournament that benefitted the fire school, Cambria Care Center also donated the cash awards for the two special fire company events.
     The school, based in Patton, holds classes, seminars, and hands-on training for volunteer firefighters each spring. This past spring, nearly 800 firefighters from across the state participated in the classes.
     Planisky said that Cambria Care Center and the Firemen’s Association plan to meet soon to discuss plans for next year CCC Golf Classic.
