About a year ago, one of our members joined the Shiawassee Township Fire Department. We have come to know several of the firemen because of this, and have heard of some needs that they have that their other funding does not cover. The Department planned to have three pancake breakfasts in February, March and April. The Grange held a bake sale at each of these with the proceeds going to the Fire Department. In May, the Grange held a benefit chicken dinner for the Fire Department. In all we raised just under a $1,000. for the department. They have recently ordered helmet flashlights for the firemen, using this money.
