Howdy Ponder! Hope all are well. Interesting month weather wise, Unbelievable!! Anyway...things are happening in Ponder. The new Remington edition has started on its next phase, homes are going up on Florence and Seaborn, a new sub-division will be going in off of 2622 and George Foster and homes on Knight Lane are going up also. With all this, you may want to check with the City of Ponder, Denton County and/or our County Commissioner to see where your property stands in relation to Fort Worth's and Denton's extra territorial jurisdiction. If you are within these boundaries there is a good chance you will be annexed by them in the future. Be assured the PVFD is planning to stay ahead of this growth and continue to provide the services that we have been since 1937. The annual BBQ dinner is approaching along with the live and silent auctions. May 20th is the date. If you have an item you would like to donate for the live auction, contact Andrew Economedes at the fire department. If you have something for the silent auction, contact the Lady VIP's. We will begin selling gun raffle tickets the first week of March. Tickets are $10. You buy more than one ticket, you can win more than one gun. The PVFD had 3 new applications submitted so hopefully all goes well for these 3 applicants and they become part of a select few of dedicated individuals. We made 39 calls this month and numerous man hours have be given up to respond to this calls for service. We can't thank our FF's enough nor their families for their dedication to this community and all those we serve. Take care and God Bless.
