Members of the South Dundas community turned out, in spite of sub-Arctic temperatures, to enjoy a hot pancake breakfast served up by Iroquois firefighters on Sunday, February 14, 2016.
“This is our second annual Firefighters breakfast,” said firefighter, Blair Belanger. “There’s lots of food, and the cooks are all Iroquois department members.”
With support from Iroquois Foodland and Fowler’s Tree Farm, the public got to enjoy pancakes, sausages and bacon, served up piping hot by the firefighters.
Admission was a free-will donation. All the funds raised go to the Iroquois Firefighters Association, and are used for updates, equipment and special events by the Iroquois fire house.
“It’s been pretty steady with people coming in,” said Philip Thompson, deputy chief of the Iroquois station. “Most of the guys are helping out today, and the public seems to be enjoying the food.”
“It was an excellent breakfast, and served up by our excellent firefighters,” said Iroquois resident, Sharon Bucking, one of the guests.
