The fire in the Nehawka Volunteer Fire Department destroyed equipment, gear and personal property of the volunteers.
Insurance has covered much of the replacement costs but not all. A poker run this Saturday, September 15th hopes to make up the difference.
Those interested in participating in the run can sign up at the DC Waterhole in Plattsmouth on the day of the event. The sign up time runs from 11am until 1pm.
Participation cost $15 per person, $20 for a doubles team.
Stops are scheduled for Waterloo, Syracuse, Johnson and Nebraska City.
Festivities include; three live bands, a pool tournament and “bags” tournament. There is a small participation charge for the tournaments.
Those unable to participate in the poker run can still make a donation to the Nehawka Volunteer Fire Department by sending a check to Ronnie Run, PO Box 196, Nehawka, Nebraska 68413.
