Fire House Chow
Thursday evening I joined friends at the Morton-Kinnear Fire Department Pancake Supper. As always, the food was plentiful, hot, and delicious. They served pancakes, sausage, eggs, coffee, and milk.
Believe me, if anyone went away hungry, it was their own fault. The firemen even served seconds (or thirds) of everything at the table.
Held annually, the supper is a major fund-raising event for the volunteer fire department, but it is also a place to visit with friends.
These men have mastered the meal preparation and serving, and they are great fire fighters, too.
The Morton-Kinnear Fire Department is one of several battalions which make up the Fremont County Fire District. The District covers an area of 6,000 square miles with 200 volunteer fire fighters. The new Morton-Kinnear fire house was dedicated in July 2009.
