Today's Spotlight is on Tristan Przynski. Tristan is a probationary firefighter with Keener Twp Vol Fire Dept. Tristan has been with our department for 2 years. Tristan started out as a Cadet with our department. Tristan will be going through firefighter training while on break from school. Tristan is pursuing a fire investigator degree from the University of Eastern Kentucky.

Tristan was awarded the Keener Twp Vol Fire Dept. scholarship last year to assist him in his studies. During his last year of high school Tristan completed his Eagle Scout project and was awarded the Rank of Eagle Scout. "I was honored when Tristan invited me to his badging ceremony" - Chief Fentress

"Tristan has been a great asset to our organization. Tristan is always willing to help and learn. When Tristan joined our department you could tell he had a genuine servant heart. Tristan is a great member of our department and I look forward to seeing how Tristan grows in this great service!" - Chief Tom Fentress

Today Shane and Noah are helping us at Tysens! We are selling Nelson's Port-A-Pit Chicken tickets at Tysen's today until 4pm. Please come and support a community project. All proceeds are to help support American Reformed Church Pavilion. Even if you can't eat chicken, won't be around the day of the event, please consider buying a ticket for an Essential Worker. So far we have had donations for Keener Township Fire Department and DeMotte PD. We still have our EMS who could benefit from this, and also how about our Tysen's employees? Those are just a few, but I'm sure there are many others you could also think of. Please come up and help us help others. Tickets are $8.00 per half chicken.
Date of event is Oct. 31st at American Reformed Church from 10am-2pm. The cooker will be there so come smell the goodness! Yum!

Boys practicing flag ceremonies using Tyler Fase's Eagle Scout Project.
Our local campout was an evening full of learning. The boys practiced their flag ceremonies and then they got together and worked on their Cooking Merit Badge. :)
