Our fundraisers include the annual Brat Fry at the fire station 1013 S. Wisconsin Drive.  This is an event where you can meet all your neighbors and friends.  We serve brats, hamburgers, steaks, pork, and chicken sandwiches.  There are also home made tasty desserts for your enjoyment.  Proceeds help offset the costs of operating the department.

2016 Brat Fry is February 28

2014 Fire Department Calendar 

A big thank you goes out the to Fire Corps for heading up the calendar project. The fire department calendar was a huge success for the Fire Corps and their fund raising efforts.  If you are a village resident and did not receive a calendar please contact the firehouse. 


    The Howards Grove Fire Department celebrated all active members of its three divisions, Firefighters, First Responders and Fire Corps., at its Annual Appreciation Banquet on Saturday evening, November 2, 2013, at Bummy’s Haus in Howards Grove.

     The Fire Department Board of Directors sponsors this event yearly, and this year demonstrated their appreciation with a dinner banquet and “Vegas Night” style fun and games.  Fifty two active and retired members and spouses enjoyed the evening with good food and fellowship with fellow volunteers old and new.

     Thanks to the very much appreciated generosity of local businesses, all of the party goers won many very nice door prizes throughout the evening.  This year’s contributing donors were:

  •     Miesfeld’s Meats        
  •     Bummy’s Haus            
  •     Funky Bean Café
  •     Miller’s Glenn            
  •     J.B.’s Entertainment        
  •     Happy Tails Boarding & Grooming
  •     Edgewood Pools & Spas        
  •     Log Cabin Restaurant        
  •     Hair Graphics (Sheboygan Falls)
  •     Subway Restaurant        
  •     Bill’s Piggly Wiggly        
  •     Howards Grove Meat Market
  •     Culver’s Restaurant

      The Annual Appreciation Banquet is held the first Saturday evening of November every year and is an event that is enjoyed by all.  It is a small way of “rewarding” all of the hard-working volunteers of all divisions of the department for the good they do throughout the entire year.


This year’s fundraising brat fry proved to be yet another fantastic and fun community event!  The funds raised during the brat fry help our department better serve the community by giving us the ability to better train and equip all firefighters and first responders.

We are so very grateful for the many businesses and individuals who donated prizes and monetary gifts, and all of our wonderful neighbors who brought a bounty of delicious cakes, bars and other desserts!  And it could never have come together without all the hard work of our firefighters, first responders, fire corps members and citizen volunteers who gave so much of their time and efforts over three days to prepare for, operate, and clean up after this event.
