held their annual All-You-Can-Eat Pancake Breakfast this past Sunday, June 26 from 7:30 - 11:30 a.m. Guests enjoyed home-cooked breakfast prepared by members of the company and got a chance to check out the engines and trucks.
Firefighter Jamie Goldstein and Public Affairs Officer Mike Kellett said that with at least 300 people in attendance, this year was by far the biggest turnout in the 22-year tradition. Prices to dine were $7 per adult, $5 per child and kids under five ate free. The money raised is put towards any supplies the company may need.
Shelton resident Jen Zitnay has supported the fire company through the pancake breakfast for many years. Her brother, Chris, used to serve as a volunteer firefighter. On Sunday, Zitnay brought her two sons, Nick and Aidan, to keep the tradition going.
"My mom called me to remind me that the breakfast was today and I didn't want to miss it," Zitnay said. "The boys and I went strawberry picking at and then came here to eat."
The morning ended with another tradition: the giant pancake. Each year, as the breakfast winds down to an end, the company uses the remainder of its batter to make a huge pancake. After having some trouble flipping it, the chefs improvised with a pizza tray for a successful flip and delicious result!
