Members of the Thomasville Fire Department Station 43, a division of the Basalt and Rural Fire Protection District, held their 11th annual Snowmobile Poker Run and Chili Dinner on Feb. 21 in the upper Fryingpan Valley. Unfortunately, snow conditions were less than desirable, resulting in fewer participants, but those who came had a good time as always.Residents of the Thomasville and Meredith communities and beyond donated the food, participants came from throughout the valley, and many people contributed to the list of prizes that were awarded. The event is held annually in memory of EMT/Fireman Vincent Paul Thomas, who was a lieutenant with the Thomasville Unit. In conjunction with this, a fund has been established to help train and educate emergency personnel (first responders, firefighters, emergency medical technicians, paramedics, etc.) in the Roaring Fork Valley.We sincerely appreciate the support of the following businesses: 4Wheelers 4X4 Center, Alpine Bank-Basalt, Alpine Tires, Big O Tire-Basalt, Catherine Store, Cross Propane, D&G Horses & Outfitting, Diamond J Guest Ranch, GO Rentals, Grand Avenue Barber Shop, High Tone Auto, J.C.

Please join us next year for the fun and help continue the cause.Thomasville Fire volunteers
