Fanning the Flame
Summit Ridge Retirement Village residents, located in Harrah, Okla., believe prayer and helping their local community is a vital part of their daily lives. Recently they found out from the local fire chief, Neil Young, that the firemen at the Harrah Fire Department were raising funds to purchase a needed piece of equipment for search and rescue.
The residents at Summit Ridge got down to business to raise money for this much- needed equipment. On Valentine’s Day, 2017, the retirement village presented Fire Chief Young with a check for $1,400, along with 12 cases of bottled water and a good-sized bin of snacks at the firehouse. Everyone was blessed by this united effort and the Summit Ridge Retirement Village was happy to give back to their community.
