The congregation of First Pentecostal Church of McCullough held a benefit for the McCullough Volunteer Fire Department Saturday afternoon, April 6. With fish dinners and an auction, which included cakes baked by the firemen, the church raised more than $4,000 for the department. The funds will be used to buy new turnout gear.
