Annual Denman Island pancake breakfast coming up

Local fundraiser supports many initiatives

Every year, over 500 breakfasts of pancakes, bacon, sausages, strawberries, and whipped cream are served during the annual fundraiser for Denman Island Fire Rescue.

This year the event takes place Sunday, June 30, from 9 a.m. to noon.

Funds derived from the breakfast help support firefighter training, a bursary fund for Denman Island graduates, the D.I. Food Bank, purchases of firefighting and emergency equipment, and other island initiatives (e.g. medical clinic relocation, Community Hall foundation repair, etc.)

There are all kinds of raffle prizes donated by local businesses as well as two fabulous grand prizes – a NexGrill all-stainless propane barbecue, donated by Friesen Family Construction, and a 45-minute glacier air tour donated by 49 North Helicopters.

Come out and celebrate and feast with us. Meet the volunteers who staff our Emergency Response Service. Join the fire crew and Sparky the Fire Dog for a great event. Denman Island Fire Rescue, proudly serving the community with professional service by volunteers.

This event would not be possible without the contributions of all the many volunteers and sponsors. Organizers thank everyone involved.
