Fire Department hosts annual breakfast

The Maple Park Fire Department members will hold its annual all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast at their fire station, 305 S. County Line Road, Maple Park, on Sunday, April 5, 7 a.m. to noon. Cost is $6 for adults and $3 for children ages 3 to 10. Children under the age of 3 eat free.

The department will use this year’s proceeds to help purchase Advanced Life Services equipment for an ambulance, as it plans to provide ALS service beginning November 2009 with its front-line ambulance. The public is invited to show support and see the new engine the department put into service in August 2008.
