Helper fire fighter Anique Welch stands on the back of one of the department's units, getting ready to go. Welch and fellow fire fighter Robert Kinder are the co-chairs for the upcoming Helper Firemen's Ball. The event is presented annually to raise money for the city's completely volunteer fire department. The 2004 dance is slated to start at 8 p.m. on Feb. 14. Fire fighters will go door to door selling tickets in Spring Glen and Kenilworth on Jan. 24 and in Helper on Jan. 31. Tickets may also be purchased from any Helper fire fighter before the dance next month.
