WAYNE – Join the Wayne Volunteer Fire Department for their Fireman’s Breakfast on Sunday October 8th from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The fire department will be hosting the famous, bi-annual meal from the fire hall in Wayne. A free will donation will get visitors omelets, pancakes, french toast, sausage and biscuits and gravy. Fire Chief Phil Monahan said the breakfast allows the department to chance to show their appreciation for the community support.
“We open up our fire hall to show the people what they have bought with their tax dollars and what they have given us over the past years,” Monahan said. “It’s our way of saying thank you for everything that you guys do for the fire department.”
Funds raised from this event will help purchase fire and rescue equipment for the department. The 33-member Wayne Volunteer Fire Department dedicates lots of time training to keep the population safe, and Monahan hopes to purchase specialized equipment with the proceeds from Sunday.
“We’re going to be looking at a set of high-lifting struts, which stabilizes big vehicles like semis, school buses, that sort of thing,” Monahan said.
The struts will make rescue efforts from large vehicles safer. The fire hall is located at 510 Tomar Drive in Wayne. For more information about this and other area events, visit the Events Calendar page on waynedailynews.com.
