Sam Owen Fire District to host annual pancake breakfast

By Reader Staff

The Sam Owen Fire District will be hosting its 14th annual Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, July 28, so take a break and forget about cooking. Instead, go over to the Sam Owen Fire Station #1 for a breakfast that will start your day off right. A scenic drive along Highway 200 will take you to the Sam Owen Fire Station #1, located at the junction of Peninsula Road and Highway 200 in Hope.  A steaming hot breakfast of pancakes, eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, juice and coffee or tea breakfast, all for only $5, will be served from 7:30-11 a.m.

After breakfast take time to tour the station, meet the firefighters and our co-fire chiefs, Stu Eigler and Tim Scofield. You’ll have the opportunity to sit in the trucks, meet Smokey the firedog and try on the equipment. It’s surprising how heavy it is. There will be free handouts for the children and the first 50 children will receive fire chief hats.

This is the major community event and only fundraiser for the Sam Owen Fire District. The monies raised are used for supplies for the fire house, including uniforms, communication devices, and important firefighting equipment. Over 60 volunteers, plus the firefighters and fire chief spend untold hours to collect donations, cook the meal and serve you a delicious breakfast. For more information about this event call 208-264-5745.
