The Cottage Grove Fire Department is looking for former firefighters to participate in an appreciation dinner.

Fire Chief Rick Redenius said the appreciation event, which fell by the wayside in recent years, has been resurrected.


“We’re trying to get back in the swing of things and we have people interested in getting this going again,” he said.

Redenius is asking all veterans of the Cottage Grove Fire Department, who have 20 or more years of experience, to contact him for an invite.

For those interested in being part of the appreciation dinner, email Redenius at or call 651-458-2855.

The appreciation dinner will be Jan. 19.
