The Brownstown Firefighters would like to announce we will be selling newspapers for the Brownstown Goodfellows organization on Friday, November 27, 2015. Please look for us at the corners of Allen Rd and Sibley and also Allen Rd and Gibraltar. New this year, we will also be collecting on Wednesday, November 25th at the Kroger store on West Rd. This will allow us the opportunity to not only take advantage of the increased foot traffic on the day before Thanksgiving but it also provides us a safe environment to collect for the Goodfellows.
Your Brownstown Firefighters will also be working on a project with a group of Shumate Junior High students, to help raise awareness in their community, volunteerism, and empathy for others. Please stop by and help these students make a difference and ensure there is “No child without a Christmas”. This is just one of the many ways the Brownstown Professional Fire Fighters Union continues to help give back to our community.
“No child without a Christmas”
Happy Holidays & Stay Safe
Thank you to everyone who donated to our MDA Fill-The-Boot campaign. We had another great year and were able to raise and donate $10310 to The Muscular Dystrophy Association.
This September 17th, 18th and 19th your Brownstown Fire Fighters will be collecting donations for the IAFF’s “Fill-The-Boot” campaign to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Look for us on the street corners of Sibley & Allen, and Gibraltar & Allen Roads collecting your donations.
The IAFF raised $100,000 for MDA in 1955, and $1 million in 1970. Fire fighters continue to raise the bar in their fundraising efforts, with $10 million raised in 1995 and $26.2 million in 2013.
To date, the IAFF has raised nearly $530 million for MDA.
“Names of longtime firefighter, police sergeant added to Brownstown Wall of Fame”.
The Brownstown Township Wall of Fame now has two new names to add to its esteemed list of honorees.
With 44 years of experience under his belt, former firefighter/medic Larry McCray hung up his hat and put away his boots last year, but a lasting memory of his contributions was made permanent with his name being added to the wall.
Likewise, retired police Sgt. Paul Kolonich’s name also was engraved on the wall after closing out a stellar career in law enforcement.
Kolonich retired in April and had 29 years of service with the Police Department.
