About 3-thousand pounds of chicken will be prepared over open fire along with dutch oven style potatoes as the Wilson Fire Department readies for their annual fundraiser.  It’s one that Fire Captain Stephen Moomey says the community has enjoyed over 45 years already.  Consequently, Moomey urges community members to arrive early and bring chairs to set up in the shady grove at the corner of Wyoming highways 22 and 390.  Each year Moomey says money raised by the chicken fry is used to purchase essential fire fighting equipment or training.  This year, he says the focus will be on paramedic training for members and there was bus extrication training for fire/EMS personnel recently.  Moomey quickly adds that the department is always buying new equipment, and anything that is related to fire departments is always very expensive. The chicken fry begins serving at noon Sunday and continues until the chicken is gone – usually around 4:00 pm.
