Since the Lions Club’s mission is to “serve”, the Crosslake Ideal Lions have donated money to the Ideal Fire Department.
Craig Wallace (pictured above 3rd from the left), Ideal Fire Department Chief 3, accepted a check this week to replace the pump on the fire boat.
The IFD fire boat has been stationed on Pig Bay of Lower Whitefish Lake since 2008. “The Lions Club was a big part of us getting the boat in the first place”, reported Craig.
The Fire Department needed to replace the pump on the boat this year due to the age of the old pump. The pump is used to fight boat fires and any structure or grass fires close to the waters edge.
Craig thanked the Crosslake Ideal Lions Club for their donation to purchase a new pump, fittings and a few miscellaneous items for the Fire Boat. He reports that the range of water spray will be increased immensely.
