Choctaw County residents came out in bunches to participate in a fundraiser and political speaking hosted by the Weir Volunteer Fire Dept. on June 13. The event featured entertainment by “Bucket List” Bob Burchfield, who sang a number of songs to the delight of the crowd. Several candidates from the upcoming August election were on hand to speak to the audience in hopes of receiving their support later on down the road. With a 50/50 raffle and numerous special donations received during the day, the Weir Volunteer Fire Dept. stated the event was very successful for them in terms of funds raised the entire day.
