Fellow firemen and business owners gathered at the Norlina Volunteer Fire Department on Sept. 24. The group came to present the funds raised for D.K. Trotman and his family members following a fire at their home in Warrenton on Sept. 15. Shown at top from left are, Aaron Askew, Megan Tabor, Detective Antonio Seward, John Franks, Josh Bolton, Trotman, his mother Phyllis Alston, Julian Greene, Walter Gardner and Mike Johnson. In addition to support from Norlina and Warrenton Rural, where Trotman is a volunteer firefighter, Arcola, Roanoke-Wildwood, Cokesbury and Drewry departments, along with many individuals and businesses in the community made generous contributions to help the family.
“When a fellow brother or sister is in need you help out,” said Josh Bolton, a volunteer with the Drewry Fire Department. “I’m very proud to see the community contributing like they did.”
