OK, so the event is officially over for this year, but I want you to try and put this on your calendar for next year's fishing season kick-off! If you have been driving around Sandy, Oregon lately, then you may be wondering what the Firefighter's Sportsman Breakfast is all about. I have seen a few large signs advertising this event at Starbucks and other local businesses. I found a press release that explains it all.
"You've seen it on TV You've heard about it on the radio... Now experience it in person!
12:01 April 28th marks the opening of fishing season. For over 40 years, this has been celebrated in Sandy, Oregon in an unusual but "tasteful" way.
Since the 1960's Sandy's Main Fire Station has transformed its engine bay into a 19 hour, feasting paradise. Sandy Volunteer Firefighters will have been serving food for 7 hours by the time fishing season officially begins.
This is a fantastic traditional Fire House style spread with pancakes, ham, and eggs prepared any way you want them. "Everyone knows firefighters love to eat great food, we have a reputation for being terrific cooks too!" said, Firefighter Alyssa Ypparila "This also allows us to reach out to our community in a meaningful way. All proceeds from The Breakfast go back to our citizens in the form of scholarships for local high school students and Christmas Baskets to families in need".
All-You-Can-Eat Sportsman's Pancake Breakfast with all the trimmmings (and eggs the way you want them)!
