A Thomson firefighter whod forgotten that hed entered a national sweepstakes to makeover a fire station was surprised during the Citys Christmas luncheon for employees Friday.
Ron Cody, one of more than 9,000 people to enter the Fire House Makeover, won a sweepstakes valued at $15,000 to refurbish one of Thomson Fire Rescue Services station houses.
I am surprised. It is exciting and we need it, Cody said. Id forgotten that I entered the contest, but I am thankful for it, he said.
We have two stations here in the City of Thomson and a concern is Station 2 on the south side of the tracks. We need big help with that one, he said. But I dont know which one will get it.
