On May 3, 2009 the Newberg Fire Department will host the annual pancake breakfast. In light of the current economic conditions and knowing some people in the community are hurting the organizers didn't feel it was appropriate to raise the price of admission and therefore, prices will remain the same as last year:
$6.00 for Adults, $4.00 for seniors, $3.00 for children ages 6-13 and free for those under 6 years of age.
Community businesses are doing their part to contribute this year, helping make the fund-raising event even more affordable for the fire department.
As always, the menu will offer Pancakes, eggs, Oktoberfest sausage, juice, mild and coffee. Syrup will be available in sugar free and berry options as well as the traditional maple variety.
Members and honorary members of the fire department and the Volunteer Firefighters association, along with their families, will serve pancakes from 6:30a.m. to 1p.m. at the main fire station located at 414 E. Second St. in Newberg.
The annual fund-raiser is now in its 19 year and benefits the association's activities, primarily the Toy and Joy program, which provides Christmas presents to local need children. The breakfast usually nets $4000 to $5000. Last year more than 1,700 people attended. For more information call 503-537-1230
