  1. FYI, under some circumstances, the Fire Department will also host private pancake breakfasts in the Fire Dept living quarters at the Fire Station, cooked and served by the firemen. I don’t know exactly how this is arranged (I suspect a donation of some kind), but I went to one once, and it was a blast.
