Where's the Memorial Fund?

Dear Gary,

After reading that the majority of the Oroville EMTs have resigned, I’m wondering what has happened to the Oroville Ambulance Memorial Fund. As I remember this fund was formed from the generous donations of our citizens in remembrances of our loved ones that have passed on.

In the past, I remember reading, in the Gazette-Tribune, occasional reports that would list who made donations and a summary of what the money was used for. At one time I had heard that there was a substantial amount of money in the fund. I checked with Oroville City Hall and they are not in charge of the account? I have a few questions: Who is in charge of that fund? How has the donated money been used? Does the fund still exist and how much money is in the fun? Do they still take donations?
