Wings and Pizza fundraisers were held on Sunday in Lackawanna County.
The Volunteer Hose Company No. 3 on Dunmore Street in Throop held its annual Wing Fest. For the occasion, volunteers made close to 10,000 chicken wings.
At the same time, Throop Hose Company No. 1 on Center Street held its annual Chicken Barbecue, which sold out within the first 5 minutes. This was the 18th year for the wing fest in Lackawanna County.
"This is a critical one for us. This is our largest fundraiser besides our envelope drive from our community. Throop Borough Council is very good to our organization and continues to provide with necessary funds, but we use this for equipment purchases, upgrades, maintenance on the apparatus, and in general just whatever we need," said Andy Hegedus, Throop Fire Chief.
