Pancakes will be falling from the sky as firemen flip flapjacks as fast as they can on Saturday, July 27 at the annual Sam Owen Fire District Pancake Breakfast.

The fundraising event takes place from 7:30-11 a.m. at the Sam Owen Fire Station No. 1 at the junction of Peninsula Road and Highway 200 in Hope.

Enjoy a steaming hot breakfast of pancakes, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, juice and coffee or tea for $5. Proceeds benefit the fire district.

Organizers said they are celebrating first responders this year.

“These are the people who reliably answer fire, rescue and advanced life support calls every day and anytime of day or night,” according to an event announcement. “You can thank them personally after breakfast when you take time to tour the station, meet our first responders and co-fire chiefs Stu Eigler and Tim Scofield.”

Those in attendance can also try on fire equipment and climb aboard one of the engines. There will also be free handouts and fire chief hats for the children.

This community event is the only fundraiser of the year for Sam Owen Fire District. The money raised will be used for fire house supplies, uniforms, communication devices and important fire fighting equipment.

To learn more about the Sam Owen Fire District, its services or volunteer opportunities, contact Tim Scofield or Stu Eigler at 208-264-5745.
