The Ely Volunteer Fire Department hosted the 48th Annual Ely Volunteer Fire Department Rancher/Business BBQ on August 17th. The event was the kickoff to the Fair and Horse Race weekend, with proceeds from the BBQ going towards scholarships for local High School graduates.  Robinson mine was happy to contribute toward the White Pine County tradition that many people from around our area look forward to every year.
