Pancakes, firefighters and July 4
Submitted By Charlie Verhoeven
Everybody is invited to join the Newark Firefighters for breakfast at Newark Fire Station #3 on Friday, July 4! The Newark Firefighters Association Local 1483 will be hosting its 7th Annual 4th of July Pancake Breakfast to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Last years event raised $5,000 and the firefighters are asking for your help to make this year's event a success. Starbuck's Coffee and IHOP pancakes and sausage will be served. Fire operations demonstrations and antique fire apparatus will be on scene. A kid's corner, prize raffle and Sharkie, the San Jose Sharks mascot (9-10 a.m.), will also be part of the event. Newark Fire Station #3 is located 39039 Cherry Street at Mowry Ave., next door to the Silliman Center. Breakfast will be served from 8 a.m. until Noon. All of this for only $5.
