Firemen present check to family
The parents of a severely burned volunteer fireman graciously accepted a $14,000 check from Oregon firefighters Monday night as their son continues to improve at a Chicago rehabilitation center.
Penny and Mick Jones, the parents of Thomas Jones, 25, Oregon, stood surrounded by Oregon firefighters as assistant fire chief Randy Travis presented the couple with the check.
"This check is for $14,000 bringing the total donation from the Oregon Firemen's Association to $25,000," said Travis. "These are the proceeds from the Oct. 6 spaghetti supper and the Nov. 24 benefit at the VFW."
