Friday night in Bear Lake, Michigan

The Friends of Bear Lake Township Fire Department would like to extend a BIG thank you to the generous people from Bear Lake United Methodist Church who hosted “An Evening With Friends” last night.

A wonderful selection of cakes, coffee, cheeses and punch were spread out for those who came to hear about the upcoming effort to fund a new fire engine for Bear Lake Township Fire Department. Members of FOBLTFD were on hand to explain about the upcoming August 6 Special Election.

#171 – 35 years old. Current pumps do not drive directly from the engine (as #171 does). It is no longer possible to find parts for many of the repairs necessary for this vehicle.

All the people who gave up their Friday evening to make this event happen display the kind of community spirit that makes Bear Lake a special place to live.

Thank you one and all!
