With Thanksgiving just a week away a lot of people are thinking about what they are thankful for. One thing the West End can be thankful for is our volunteer fire departments. Neah Bay, Clallam Bay/Sekiu, Quillayute, Beaver and Forks, they respond at all times of the day and night and the only compensation is when we say thank you.
