Stone Park Fire Department news

Good afternoon, 

My name is Maria Ramirez and am a resident of Stone Park.  Recently, we worked to get signatures to the following question on the ballot in an effort to get our fire department reinstated.  We are now at the beginning of early voting and still trying to gather funds to safely inform the residents to vote “YES”.  Please help us by posting our Go Fund Me link.  Any and all monetary donations are appreciated.  $5, $10 anything.  
Funds will go towards the purchase of signage and printed materials.  
Please also visit our website and watch the 70 years of service video.  
Thank you for taking the time to read this message.  
Very Respectfully, 
Maria Ramirez 
ballot initiative to reinstate the Stone Park Fire Department
