Cannon Township firefighters flip flapjacks for charity

The Cannon Township Fire Department will host a free pancake breakfast on October 6, from 8 to 10 a.m. The breakfast will be at Cannon Township Fire Station 2,

at 6878 Belding Road NE. Breakfast will be served by firefighters and will include pancakes, sausages, eggs, orange juice and coffee.

Although the breakfast is free, donations will be accepted with proceeds going to the Great Lake Burn Camp, which benefits kids six through 17 with healing, growth and support from other burn survivors in a summer camp environment.

Aside from the breakfast, kids can tour the department’s various fire apparatus and the fire station.

The community breakfast is a wonderful event hosted by the fire department to kick off Fire Prevention Week. The Kent County Sheriff Department will have an information table open from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. with educational items. Lt. Marc Burns, Shift Commander and a Community Officer will be available to meet with you and your family members. This is a wonderful time to learn tips from our experts to help keep our neighborhoods safer.
