Meridian Township Firefighters Union Serves The Community Breakfast
MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - The pancake breakfast raised $1000 for the local Cub and Boy Scout Troops and $300 was raised for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
MERIDIAN TOWNSHIP - Local Cub and Boy Scout Troops partnered with the Meridian Township Firefighters Union and spent their morning serving the community an “All You Can Eat Pancake Breakfast.”
Scout Troops arrived at 2/42 Community Church the night before the breakfast to help set up tables and chairs and get everything ready. The cooking was left up to the Meridian Township Firefighters, who arrived early to start flipping pancakes and cook up sausage. Meridian Township Firefighter Lieutenant Al Diaz said, “we’re doing this to help support the boy scout and cub scout troops. So, we’re donating our time here to help make this event successful.”
Breakfast was served starting at 8 am all the way until 11 am for a fee of $5. Boy and Cub Scouts made their way to tables to clear plates and made sure guest had everything they needed. Scout Boy Benjamin Beemer explained, “I’ve been helping people serve and cleaning up tables for all these good people today. It’s quite fun, honorable honor to do today for everyone.”
Most of the money from the event would go towards the local Boy and Cub Scout Troops. “So we’re going to create a fund that we can, each of the units draw from. And the goal here is to give kids and opportunity if they don’t have the resources to go to some summer camps, day camps,” said Assistant Troop Master Ted Ferris.
This event is one of many that are taking place for Meridian Celebrates 175th Anniversary year long celebration. Both The Meridian Township Firefighters Union and the local Scout
