On the first Sunday of each month thru April, the Daggett fire hall will be serving breakfast. Firemen themselves cook the meal, with the help of Big Elm members, their spouses, and high school students doing their community service for school.
What’s cooking you ask? Buckwheat pancakes, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and hash browns with a choice of coffee, hot chocolate, orange juice or tomato juice. Pancakes seem to be a favorite. Why? Because they are buckwheat, served with real maple syrup.
Katie Bellows likes coming to support the fire hall. “I like the breakfast, especially the pancakes. I also like seeing who’s here,” said Bellows.
Julie McClure stated, “It’s a nice community gathering to benefit a local department.”
Her husband Rob added, “It’s good to have them here.”
Breakfast is served from 7 to 11 a.m. The cost is $8 for adults and children over age 12; and $7 for seniors and children under 12, and free for children under the age of six.
All proceeds help support our local fireman with general operations. A special thanks goes out to all of the volunteer firemen and women who drop what they are doing to come to the need of the community – whether they are working, relaxing or enjoying family.
