The McLouth Fire Department thanks everyone who supported the pancake feed to raise funds for the automated external defibrillator for the medical crew. This device is used to shock the heart back into rhythm during heart failure. The fundraiser was a great success and the department has almost reached its goal. Additional contributions are certainly welcome. If anyone would like to make a donation, you may drop it off at City Hall or mail it to: McLouth City Hall, 110 N. Union St., McLouth 66054. Please make checks payable to “McLouth Fire Department.”
