Fundraiser for firefighting scholarship that honors former Peru chief

Posted by wlpo on September 22, 2014

Do you have a child dreaming of becoming a firefighter? Money will be raised this Saturday for a scholarship benefitting L-P students who study fire science.

The “Firefighters & Friends Fighting For Gary” drive-thru dinner is from 3 until 7 at the Peru Fire Department. It’s an effort to raise money for the Gary Eccles Memorial Scholarship Fund. Two students received the scholarship last spring.

Eccles is a former Peru fire chief who died from cancer last fall.
