DAYTON -- A Valley farmer won a $2,500 grant and donated his winnings to a local volunteer fire company.

The check was presented from "America's Farmers Grow Communities" to the Clover Hill Volunteer Fire Company Thursday.

Larry Rohrer won the grant and felt it's best used there.

Chief Chad Stover says, with this money, firefighters can now have more defibrillators into the fire department's vehicles.

"We are appreciative of Larry Rohrer for choosing us as the recipient of the grant. It means a lot to us, when we get feedback from public and community, that they appreciate what we do," said Stover.

With the $2,500 check, the department will purchase two defibrillators for its trucks.

The grant is offered to 39 states. The winner had to decide on what local nonprofit the money would go toward.
