On Saturday August 9 the 36th annual Brew Run was held in Brewster. Over 1700 runners participated in this challenging, professionally organized 5.2 mile road race that winds through several areas of the community. As in past years the proceeds from the race were donated to the Brewster Fire & Rescue Association for their dedicated efforts in supporting the race activities and their dutiful commitment to serving the residents and visitors of the Town with exemplary Fire and EMS services. The group utilizes the funds from this annual event to support member training activities, sponsor community programs, subsidize fire safety education efforts, and fund the purchase of various fire/ems equipment required by the department and the Town of Brewster.
In a special presentation prior to the start of this years race the Town of Brewster recognized Henry Sears for his 52 years of service to the community as an employee at the Council-on-Aging and as a Call Fire Captain. His wife Jean who held the position of Director of the Council-on-Aging for many years was also present and recognized. The Brewster Fire Department would like to thank all of the runners who participated in this year’s race and also Mr. Tom Meagher for their continued generous support of our organization.
