It was a nasty, wet and cold Saturday night when the Artemus Volunteer Department hosted the SKFA (Southeastern Kentucky Firefighter’s Association) Christmas party. The community and families of firefighters were invited to eat a meal, bond together and be on hand for the voting in of new officers.
SKFA is an organization that covers 8 counties: Bell, Knox, Whitley, Clay, Laurel, Harlan, Rockastle and Jackson. The organization covers 76 Fire Departments (Artemus is one) under their umbrella. Not all departments belong to the organization. Annual dues are $25, and they meet every other month. Next month’s meeting will be held at the Middlesboro Fire Department; Thursday Jan. 15, at 7 p.m.
