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.
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.
