To the Editor:

I would like to thank all the business that sponsored the 63rd Annual Southside Virginia Volunteer Firefighters Association Competition. Without their support we would not have been able to host the event.

I would like to thank Assistant Chief Everette Gibson, LVFD members, and LVFD Ladies Auxiliary on their outstanding job with setting everything up for the competition. We had great weather for the day’s events. We only had four teams competing this year, but it was a safe and successful day for all.
