The Clayton Fire Department has a couple events coming up. This Friday, October 15, the Clayton Fire Fighters Association (CFFA) Annual BBQ Chicken Fundraiser will be held at Fire Station #1 located at 325 W. Horne Street. Serving starts at 11:00 a.m. and continue until 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $7.00 per plate which includes a half chicken, green beans, boiled taters, and rolls. The Ladies Auxiliary is providing desserts. 

CFFA is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, that donates to such charities as the North Carolina Fallen Firefighters Foundation, the Jaycee Burn Center, and Red Cross. They also donate to local churches and individuals in need. The CFFA is working to restoring their old Engine 1, a 1947 Ford pumper. Read about the fundraiser and the old truck.

On Saturday, October 23, the Clayton Fire Department is participating at a St. Baldrick's Foundation event at The Flipside, located at 408 E. 2nd Street. The shaving starts at 3:00 p.m. They hope to match or exceed last year's totals, which was organized by the Baker Family after they spent a summer taking their son Bo to UNC Children's Hospital as he underwent radiation and chemotherapy treatments.

You can donate, or register as a shavee at www.stbaldricks.org/events/flipside. Even Chief Barbee is going under the blade as team captain. Funds raised by the St. Baldrick's Foundation are used to fund childhood cancer research.
