a Kismet tradition: Pancake Breakfast at Firehouse
This Saturday's Pancake Breakfast -hosted by our KFD- fed over
150-kids and adults alike. In a new twist, the adults were offered a $5 brunch
drink choice bartended by Joe Paternoster. Between the food and drink, and a
50-50 drawing, a healthy profit was posted. It took a full crew to pull off the
event -in the kitchen, serving, set up and cleanup.
Karen Spollen, Joe Carleton, Linda Nowachek and Janet Lockie
spearheaded the long popular brunch.

After some prodding we were able to acquire the following information on the event:
The money goes towards buying Fire fighting equipment. A fully equipped firefighter costs over $8,500 We endeavor to purchase as much equipment as we can by fundraising, therefore not solely relying on taxpayer dollars. At Saturday's Pancake Breakfast we served Pancakes, sausage, bacon, fresh strawberries and blueberries, hot coffee, tea, OJ and ice coffee all for a $12.00 wristband which allowed you to go up as many times you wanted. We had a 50/50 raffle with the lucky winner taking home $275. Our department treasurer enforced a strict NO give back rule. We are extremely happy to report that after expenses we raised $1,800
List of volunteers, a combination of KFD and past KFDA members, were thanked but not individually listed
