The Washington Fire Department is preparing for their annual event that in past years has brought out about 15-hundred residents. The Fireman Pancake Day is Wednesday, January 16, which is next Wednesday. It consists of two meals, one for lunch and one for supper. The hours are 11 to 1, and 5 to 7.
Along with purchasing food, preparation involves moving fire trucks and other equipment out of the station, and setting up seating for more than 200 people.
The event started over fifty years ago. The money raised supplies a variety of equipment needs for the department.
