Local residents will have the opportunity to help local firefighters while receiving a 10×13 portrait of their family at fall photo shoots at the Zebulon Opportunity Center. Excalibur Central LLC will finish visiting local homes this week to schedule the photos as a fundraiser for Pike Volunteer Emergency Services Booster Organization.For residents who would like to schedule a photo shoot, call 770-468-8633. The photo sessions will be scheduled from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 15-16 at the Zebulon Opportunity Center.Those who donate $40 will receive a coupon for a family portrait session and a 10×13 photo print after the picture is taken. Checks must be made out to PVESBO and proceeds will help purchase needed items for fire stations around the county – including the Meansville Volunteer Fire Station. ’In the past, this fundraiser has helped us purchase thermal imagers – which are used for checking behind walls to see if a fire has started and if there are hot spots that could start a fire,’ said PVESBO president Teri Totten. ‘We’ve also bought additional gas detectors where needed and Cascade kits which are used to fill air cylinders after they are used.’The photo session dates have not yet been determined and more information will be provided in upcoming editions. ’This fundraiser benefits everyone in the county who may be affected by fire,’ said Totten. ‘We hope people will continue to support this fundraiser and enjoy their family photos while helping out the fire departments.’ Organizers for the fundraiser will visit homes during day and evening hours. Those who are interested in making a donation but have not been contacted, can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 770-468-8633.
