Members of the Campbell Township Volunteer Fire Department participated in the U.S. 50 Yard Sale this past weekend. From left to right are David Hartwell, safety officer for the department; Melody Duke, associate member who does the public relations for the dept.; and Bill Harrison, firefighter. "You don't make big bucks," Melody said of the effort. Usually, proceeds from a yard sale goes to help with equipment purchases, but you never know. If the sale went really well, they said they might put it toward the $50,000 still needed for their new station.
