    Spencer Countians proved generous again this year, contributing more than $36,000 in an annual fundraising campaign that is spearheaded locally by area firefighters and volunteers.

    The Taylorsville-Spencer County Fire Department hit the streets with a mission to beat last year’s total for the WHAS Crusade for Children.

    The fire department continues to show their support for the Crusade for Children by collecting donations for the non-profit at popular intersections and by going door-to door.
