2015 Haunted Hayride

The Brownstown Fire Fighters regretfully announce that our annual Haunted Hayride will not take place this year. Due to new park administration and policy, a daily park pass would be required for entry. The Huron-Clinton Metropolitan Authority (HCMA) has waived the park entry fee for the past 20 years. This event was held for the purpose of charity. All parties involved volunteer their talents and time to support local charitable works and 100% of the funds that were raised were given back to the community through the Brownstown Professional Fire Fighters Union (BPFFU).

The BPFFU feel the additional cost required by HCMA is unfair to our loyal patrons and is for profit only. The BPFFU hopes that in the future we can work together with the HCMA to resolve these issues and once again be able to raise funds for our numerous charities.

Wall of Honor

“Names of longtime firefighter, police sergeant added to Brownstown Wall of Fame”.

The Brownstown Township Wall of Fame wallofhonornow 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.
