MERIT donors abound
The family of firefighter David Rufer made a substantial donation Sept. 20 toward the continued development of the MERIT Center in Monroe. Pictured from left: Davids mother, Dottie Rufer, daughter Danielle Rufer, sons Derek Rufer and Jacob Kubly and father Ken Rufer. A 20-year member of the Monroe Fire Department, Rufer died while on duty during a training exercise June 12, 2007. The donated memorials will assist in the construction of a firefighter rest and rehabilitation shelter at the MERIT Center.
Even in these tough economic times, area residents and organizations continue to generously donate to the Monroe Emergency Response Inter-agency Training (MERIT) Center being developed in Monroe's North Business and Industrial Park.
