Uncle Joe has formed the Hooterville Volunteer Fire Department Volunteer Band to perform at fundraisers to raise money to form an actual Hooterville Volunteer Fire Department. However, with Uncle Joe as leader with no musical sense, the band would probably get paid not to perform. As Kate kiboshes at least the band rehearsing in the hotel as it is driving paying guests away, Kate is then tasked with coming up with a way to raise the money instead of a disgruntled Uncle Joe. Beyond asking for donations (which nets $62), Kate figures they need professional help. A Henry Phillips who works for a company that manufacture fire equipment did such work for Squaw Creek. Calling in an outsider irks Uncle Joe even further. So it becomes a battle of putting together all the necessary pieces of a fire department between Uncle Joe and Mr. Phillips, the former who says he can do it all with the $62 raised. Written by
