Dows Rural Fire Assocation Donation


The NEW Cooperative Foundation is pleased to present a donation to the Dows Volunteer Fire Department and Dows Rural Fire Association.  On Thursday, June 15, 2017, Marc Scheller, Dows location manager and Kirk Ebel, Region 1 Manager along with Jerry Ose, NEW Cooperative Board member, representing NEW Cooperative’s Foundation along with the Land O’ Lakes Foundation, presented a check to Matt Ring, Dows Fire Chief, Larry Klatt, mayor, and Paul Martin, Dows Fire Department, in the amount of $5,500.

The donation will be used to assist in the purchase of a 1997 Pierce Arrow Equipment/Pumper truck.

Fire Chief Matt Ring stated “We appreciate NEW Cooperative’s donation to help support the purchase of the newer truck. As a small department, it is difficult to come up with the proper funds for a large project like this. Donations like this plus the other donations we have received, will enhance the safety for our fire department for years to come.”
