U.S. Congresswoman Carol Miller, 20th District Del. Nathan Brown, Mingo County Magistrate Donald Sansom, and Mingo County Clerk Yogi Croaff joined Mayor Charles Sparks and a large crowd of community members in helping the Kermit Volunteer Fire Department celebrate its 7th Annual Wilburn “Whig” Preece Pig Roast, which was held Sunday, May 16, at the fire department. The yearly event began in 2015, the year following Preece’s death. Preece, who succeeded his father Tom and was succeeded by his son Wilburn “Tomahawk” Preece, to date remains the department’s longest-serving fire chief.
