The pancake breakfast during the Sunflower Festival is usually a fundraiser for the Sundridge-Strong Firefighters. Like we did last year, let’s have our pancakes “together apart” and, if you like, send in a donation to our first responders. Make your pancakes, make a donation to our volunteer Fire Department (just like we traditionally do), take a photo (send it in to firstname.lastname@example.org or post on our Facebook Group) and ENJOY!
When: Saturday August 14th
Notes: Suggested donation: $8/adult; $5/child;
Please e-transfer directly to email@example.com. The Fire Department uses these donations to buy lifesaving equipment. Please note that the Sundridge-Strong Fire Department is hosting an Open House this SATURDAY between 10:00am and 1:00pm!
