It’s Labor Weekend and locally, one community held a special cook-out to honor the people who help to save lives in their community each and everyday.
The Cameron community came together for a Labor Day Bash put on by the local EMS Squad, who’s hours of labor have helped many in the neighborhood.
That being said, the squad still felt like they had more to give back to the community.
“There’s not much here for the kids, we finally got a little a head to where we could do that and what money we make, we’ll turn around and try to get us a building that we can call ours,”Cameron EMS President, Beth Howard.
Those in the Cameron community are glad an event like the Labor Day Bash is available for the local kids.
“It’s great, they’re all having a good time and it’s nice to have these things out here, it’s nice to have this location to have it,”Cameron EMT Helen McMasters said.
While it was fun and games for the kids, the EMS Squad and their supporters knew the Labor Day Bash could help save lives in the future with the money they were able to raise.
“We hope that this will help us in a way to make some money for our E-squad cause it takes a lot to run it now because we have a lot of patients that we take from Cameron to Wheeling Park and that’s a good distance,” Cameron EMS member Ann Littleton said.
“It’s to help people, it’s to help EMS, they always need and they help a lot of people, they really do.”
The Cameron EMS hopes the Labor Day Bash will become an annual event in the community.
