COALPORT, CLEARFIELD COUNTY - A local fire department is looking for another pot of gold this St. Patrick's Day weekend.

The Glendale Volunteer Fire Department in Coalport hosted their annual St. Patrick's Day Dinner. The event is one of the department's biggest annual fundraisers and has been a Coalport tradition for 59 years. Hundreds of people made their way to the fire hall for the $8 turkey dinner and every year, no matter what, organizers say the community rallies to help out the department.

"This helps us keep up with training and with equipment and it really gives us the best opportunity to serve our community," Glendale Deputy Fire Chief Brian Gondeck says.
