Grillin' good time

Lost Coast Brewery owner Barbara Groom (wearing the Loleta Volunteer Fire Department jacket with the name Ambrosini on it) and Loleta Volunteer Fire Fighter Chris Christensen (right) contributed their time to cook the steak and oysters for the June 1 fundraiser in Loleta. The proceeds raised, which are still being tallied, will pay for summer enrichment activities through the Loleta Boys & Girls Club, and a Boy Scouts Explorer Program, which will include fire training for youth between the ages of 15 and 21. Loleta Volunteer Fire department Chief Ken Nielsen gave special thanks to Humboldt County 1st District Supervisor Rex Bohn for donating the use of his barbecue to the event, for his role at the auctioneer at the event, and for his ongoing support of fire department.
