Photos: East Pembroke's 'Get Fired Up for Trey' fundraiser

By Howard B. Owens

The East Pembroke Volunteer Fire Department is hosting a fundraiser today for Trey (pictured above with Chief Don Newton Jr., and his mother, Heather).

Trey recently underwent surgery for Chiari Malformation (Arnold-Chiari), a serious neurological disorder where the bottom part of the brain, the cerebellum, descends out of the skull and crowds the spinal cord, putting pressure on both the brain and spine causing many symptoms.

The fundraiser will help cover his medical expenses. It includes a chicken BBQ, chance auction and silent auction and goes until 5 p.m. at the East Pembroke fire hall on Route 5.
