Arbor Vitae Fire Department hosts 3rd annual firefighter chili cook-off
ARBOR VITAE - This year the Arbor Vitae Fire Department hosted the Firefighter chili cook-off.

The event was being held at the Little Rice Fire Department the previous two years.

Arbor Vitae firefighter Ashely Roach said she loves having a job that lets her serve her community.

"Our fire department is very proud of the things we get to do for the community," said Roach. "Our picnic is something we have been doing for over 40 years and being able to use those same skills to put on events for other organizations feels good."

All proceeds from the fundraiser go to Vilas County Sheriff's Office K9 Stitch, money raised will cover the dog's training and vet bills.

Stitch's handler, Deputy Amanda Drewsen said she appreciates the support from the community.

"Anytime that we get out and see that people support us in the community and support this program, it makes me very proud to be a handler," said Drewsen.
