I read this article because I'm a big fan of the Williamstown volunteer fire department. But gatekeeper and vertigo put a different angle on the article than what I'd originally read into it. I had to reread the article, and am STILL laughing over the comments. What great senses of humor! These ARE some generous, caring people at the Billtown Fire Dept., and the fundraiser is for a VERY worthy cause. Bring your sense of humor over Saturday and share it with them. They'll enjoy it as well!
