Another pancake breakfast coming up this weekend. The last one was for another community, this one is for ours. The fire dept. Jack used to be on. They use the money for purchases for the dept. in order to save the taxpayers from some of the expenses for the things they need. Here is a quote from last nights paper.
"Town Receives New Equipment.
The Town of Beloit Firefighters Association, comprised of dues-paying fire department personnel, recently donated two new sets of TNT Jaws of Life to the Town of Beloit.
With this latest purchase the Firefighters Association has now donated more than $200,000 worth of rescue, medical and training equipment to the Town of Beloit since 1989.
On Saturday, the Firefighters Association will be raising funds at their 22nd Annual Pancake Breakfast from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Beloit Turner High School." (I did leave out personnel names and the school address)
Jack works this event every year. Both because he was a paid - on - call fighter for 35 years, but as the school (he used to work at the school district) and fire dept. liaison. He is the one who goes in by 4 and gets everything ready for the firefighters to to come in and get the burners up a ready to cook on. I hope the success of this event is as profitable this year as in the past.
