The Tamaqua Rescue Squad and DARE Committee held their first annual Roast Beef Dinner last weekend to benefit the D.A.R.E. program. Since very little funding is available via government grants, the Tamaqua Rescue Squad and DARE Committee decided on raising funds themselves via a roast beef dinner. Volunteers stated their first roast beef fundraiser was a great success and look forward to next year's dinner. Volunteers pictured from left are Tamaqua Rescue Squad/Tamaqua Police Officer/DARE Committee member Matt Bynon, Tamaqua Rescue Squad/Tamaqua Police Officer/DARE Committee member Dwayne Hacker, DARE Committee members Cathy Klingaman, and Forrest Rolko.
