June 30, 2pm the Liverpool Volunteer Fire Department, weighing in at 627 pounds, were crowned in White Point’s Pennies for Protection Challenge 2012!
With 13 reporting Volunteer Departments collecting a grand total of 4218.925lbs = $8437.85 they all should be crowned King Pennies!
All Departments seemed to have fun with the penny collection and never did get too competitive – it was never about who would become the ‘King Penny’ really. Throughout the day, emails, phone calls and postings on Facebook were all filled with updates about the folks that kept streaming in with bags and buckets in support of their community Volunteer Fire Department. Lots of laughs were shared and indeed some got very creative – check out the Fire Hydrant from United Communities below!
