Funds Distributed to Mineral County Emergency Services

Monte Vista Journal - July 17, 2020

The FRIENDS OF MINERAL COUNTY EMERGENCY SERVICES (FOMCES) recently distributed funds raised at our last Appreciation Dinner and Auction to Mineral County’s Search & Rescue (SAR), Fire Department (FD), and Emergency Medical Services (EMS) organizations.  FOMCES is a 501C3 non-profit organization supporting Mineral County’s service volunteers and provided a total of $55,000 raised from the dinner, or $18,333 per group, to support the purchase of needed equipment and team training. The FOMCES Board would like to thank all in the valley that participated in purchasing tickets, providing items for the auction, and bidding and buying the many fabulous items offered.

Due to the Covid19 issue we have unfortunately had to cancel most of our 2020 summer activities including our popular golf and pickleball tournaments. We look forward to a happy and healthy town, county, state, and nation in 2021 where we can continue events supporting these valuable volunteer organizations that provide life-saving services to the entire community.

FOMCES board members include: Bob Holt, Carl & Joann Hill, Sandy Clark, Shai Zimmermann, Gidget Madix, Charlie Brown, Mark Hebert, Fred Hosselkus, Jim Adelman, Craig Wear, Al Clark, Robert Goodwin, Terry Wetherill and Larry Hilzer (not pictured).
