A new nonprofit organization has begun raising money to restore the 1917 Seagrave Monrovia Fire Engine that was donated to the the Monrovia Firefighters Association in 2010.
The union is trying to raise $100,000 to restore the historic firefighting vehicle and has partnered with a local automobile restorer to continue fundraising efforts after they hit a snag, according to the city website.
"...They were having a difficult time raising money. They didn't know how to get this accomplished," said Chris Kidd, owner of Tired Iron Works, according to the city website. "So I volunteered to give them a hand to get the thing rolling."
The "Save the Seagrave Organization" held a fundraiser on March 1 and plans a pancake breakfast event on May 11 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. at Firestation 101.
