Florham Park Volunteer Fire Department holds Pancake Breakfast

On Sunday, October 3rd my son and I attended the semiannual pancake breakfast held at the fire house on Brooklake Road in Florham Park. It was a great event and seemed  to get more crowded as the day went on. Before sitting down to breakfast, my son and I were treated to a tour of the old firehouse which was moved from Ridgedale Avenue a few years ago. The 1st floor has an old fire truck on display complete with all the original brass, hoses and antique equipment. The 2nd floor was a display of old fire suits, protective gear, extinguishers, and pictures. A very impressive collection from the last 50 years all within the borders of the town I have lived in for last ten years.

After spending about a ½ hour looking through the museum it was time to get down to the real business of eating pancakes! I was happy to say that breakfast was delicious! We were treated to pancakes and sausage from the fire department served with juice and coffee and my son was even given his very own fire helmet.

The Florham Park Volunteer Fire Department holds two annual pancake breakfast fundraising events each year.  Check their website frequently for current information. www.florhamparkfiredepartment.org.
