Members of the Gothenburg Volunteer Fire Department greeted guests at the Fireman’s Ball on Saturday, June 5, and gave instructions on how to access the food and drinks. Last year’s ball was canceled due to Covid, and organizers said they were excited to get to once again host the summer tradition in person. Several local barbecue cooks fired up their smokers and roasters to serve the large crowd that gathered to enjoy a taste of summer. The evening was capped off by live music. Proceeds from the ball help support our local fire department.
