There was a fundraiser on Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the Vinton Rec Center for Jason McGee, one of the Town of Vinton police officers. The fundraiser included an auction, a silent auction, a bake sale, hot dogs and BBQ, and the Rec Center pool open for use with a donation. Live music was on hand at the Rec Center Pavilion. Despite rainy weather, there was a large turnout and the event raised a considerable sum to pay for medical expenses. Mayor Kenneth Stinson issued a proclamation declaring September 8 to be Jason McGee day.
The Town of Vinton stands behind Jason McGee and asks he be kept in our thoughts and prayers.
