Gardiner Fire Chief Matthew Goodnow and his daughter Madison accept a check, presented to the fire department by long-time Gardiner business, Lucky C Stables. For the past few years, around Valentine’s Day, Lucky C has hosted a campaign to support local first responders. They call it “Hearts on Fire.” Lucky C clients show love and support for their favorite horses by purchasing different sized hearts. These translate into points, which later translate into dollars. One hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to Gardiner Fire and Rescue. This year they raised over $1,600. In the picture above, the 2020 “Valentine’s Horse” winner, the beloved “Texas Tea,” owned by Lucky C and leased by Farrah Sherwood, is on the right. Runner up, “Arrow,” with owner Noelle Parsons, is on the left.
Gary and Susan Clark, owners of Lucky C Stables, want to express their gratitude to those who joined in the fun and helped support their local first responders.
