60th ANNUAL CHASKA FIRE DEPARTMENT
Ice Fishing Contest
Saturday, February 25th, 2017
1:00-3:00 P.M. • Firemen’s Park, Chaska
The Chaska Fire Department has served the community for 145 years, making it one of the oldest fire departments in the state. To put that in perspective, some of the neighboring departments were founded in the 1960’s. The Chaska Fire Department has a rich history of nearly a century and a half of operation. It still closely resembles the organization that was founded in 1871. It is almost entirely a volunteer organization which relies on the generosity of resident donations to help supplement activities that are not funded through the City budget. The Fishing Contest is that one and only fundraiser.
The firefighters are excited to be utilizing the brand new Chaska Event Center as the headquarters for this year’s contest. This will be a great community gathering event where residents can also tour the fabulous Chaska Curling and Event Center. The Crooked Pint Restaurant will be partnering with the Fire Department for food and beverages during the event.
