The Vinton Fire Department will wrap up one of its busiest weeks of the year with one of its largest annual fund-raisers.
The VFD Pancake Breakfast will take place from 6 a.m. t0 1 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 15, at the fire station.
The annual fund-raiser is one of the department’s two annual meals; the VFD holds a fish fry in the spring.
Firefighters will arrive at the station at 4 p.m. Sunday morning to begin preparing the meal. The first customers will arrive right at 6 p.m. or earlier. The firefighters have become familiar, over the years, with the “regular” customers, becoming familiar with crowds who come at certain hours each year. Some stop on the way to church; others on the way home.
The meal will include the traditional favorites: Pancakes, scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, ham, sausage links, juice and milk.
Cost is $6 per person.
