Retired Fire Warden Bob Wolff, (a.k.a. “Our Eye in the Sky’), wants everyone to know it’s not too late to jump on board the raffle to be called at the Stillwater Firehouse at 6 p.m., May 24.

Wolff is well known for his dedication to fighting forest fires and his former long-time postings high atop the Catfish Fire Tower off the Appalachian Trail in Hardwick. The Ridge View Echo featured him in a previous Interesting Folks article.

To buy a ticket, call him at 973-900-1559. There’s also a limited number of fire tower tee shirts available.
