The Smith County Rescue Squad will be holding their annual roadblock on Saturday, April 3 , from 8-12pm. in Carthage, South Carthage, and Gordonsville. The funds collected will assist the squad in their day-to-day operations. The volunteer squad is responsible for all search and rescue operations on Smith County, and they rely entirely on donations, grants, and membership dues for funding.
In the event of inclement weather, the event will be held on Saturday April 10th.
In addition, after consultation with healthcare officials, the squad has made the decision to cancel the 2021 Easter Egg Hunt. This decision was made carefully and out of an abundance of caution in hopes that the long-standing tradition will resume in 2022.
