Annual Community Events
The GLFD hosts three annual community events, each sponsored by the Glen Lake Fire & Rescue Association (GLFRA). All proceeds from these events go to the GLFRA and are used by the Association to assist the Glen Lake Fire Department with funding for training and equipment. The Glen Lake Fire & Rescue Association is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation.
Please note, for public safety, all community events are TBD for 2021 depending upon current covid-19 restrictions.
The pancake breakfast is typically held the first Sunday in July from 8am-Noon in the Glen Arbor Town Hall. Emergency Services personnel prepare and serve the breakfast complete with pancakes, sausage, fruit and beverage. It's a great opportunity to share a meal with members of the community and visit with the men and women that serve the community as members of the GLFD.
Summer Open House
A Fire Station Open House is held at the Glen Arbor Station on the last Saturday in July from 10am-2pm. Hot Dogs and Ice Cream are provided. There are many activities for the kids including a bounce house, access to the fire trucks and rescue boat, equipment to try on and instruction on how to use an extinguisher. A great time for adults as well.
A similar Open House is held at the Empire Fire Station in early October. The Open House is held in conjunction with the Empire Museum Heritage Days from 1-4pm.
911 Memorial Service
A time to remember a tragedy and those who fell in the line of duty. The Memorial Service includes music by local artists, candle lighting ceremony and a guest speaker. The service is held on September 11th at 9am at the Glen Arbor Fire Station.
