On Tuesday, the Baldwin Volunteer Fire Department will hold an event benefiting a St. Mary Sheriff’s Deputy battling cancer.

From 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on Tuesday, November 13, plate lunches of fried fish and white beans will be sold at the Baldwin Fire Station to support St. Mary Sheriff’s Deputy Ross Mire and help pay for any medical expenses.
