Texas Township Firefighters Association provides community education programs on fire safety and supports firefighting career education through the Boy Scouts of America Explorers Program.

The annual PARADE escorting Great Lakes Burn Camp campers and volunteers, riding in a vast array of FIRE RIGS in a convoy of MOTORCYCLES will pass through Texas Corners Sunday, August 7th about 1:15 p.m.

The Social’s offerings include Ice Cream and toppings, Root Beer Floats, Hot Dogs, Brats and Slushies.  The children may select from face painting or glitter tattoos applied by two fantastic artists.  The carnival features a bounce house, fire brigade bucket toss, house of fire balloon board, firefighter duck pond, treasure hunt, disk drop, fire hose experience and treasure hunt.  All participants will have a variety of prizes from which to choose.

The event is completely organized and staffed by volunteers from the Texas Township Firefighters Association, Township officials and staff as well as community volunteers. It is underwritten by monetary and in-kind contributions from area business owners and caring township residents.

Whether you join as an attendee, contributor or volunteer for the day of the event, we appreciate your participation.  It truly will be a feel good day!
