Community Shows Its Support for Injured Fire Fighter Wesley Spires

The Westside Volunteer Fire Department and the Merriwether Fire Department held a BBQ plate sale to benefit Wesley Spires, Saturday, June 1, at the Westside Community Center.

While an exact tally of proceeds is yet available, early estimates are that the sold out event raised over $10,000 to assist Wesley with medical costs he has incurred after being beaten in an attack last month at the Riverwalk.

As for Wesley, who has been listed in critical condition for some time since the attack, reports are that he is now awake and walking and talking.
