The department will also be using $10,000 from the annual Frontier Days fundraiser for the estimated $28,000 project that includes extensive renovations in the conference room.

Granvold said it is very exciting to receive the donation and praised the Ladies of the Country Store for their donation.

"It's very helpful. We wouldn't be able to do it any other way," he said.

The work on the conference room will include new flooring, painting, a handicap accessible bathroom, adding new cabinets, replacing tile and additional storage.

Granvold said it will a nice addition for the fire hall and will be great for the public to see at events like the Frontier Days Pancake Breakfast.

Work is also planned in the bay where more storage will be added, a new wall will be put in, and painting will take place.

Work on the project is expected to take place in the next few weeks and Granvold estimated it would take four to five weeks to complete.
