Saturday: Firefighters flip flapjacks for benefit

Menlo Park firefighters will demonstrate their cooking skills from 7:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, at Fire Station No. 1, 300 Middlefield Road in Menlo Park, at the annual pancake breakfast to benefit the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation.

The Menlo Park Fire Protection District, the Junior league of Palo Alto/Mid Peninsula, and the Stanford Park Hotel are teaming up for the 12th year to benefit the foundation, which provides programs for burn survivors in California. Last year's pancake breakfast raised $12,000, with more than 1,000 people attending, according to Junior League president Rahela Abbas.

Along with pancakes and sausages, there will be activities for children such as face painting, arts and crafts, coloring, and posing for photos in the vintage fire engine, Old Tom.

The fire district will host a silent auction featuring a dinner for four prepared by firefighters and a child's ride to school on a fire truck.

Tickets for the breakfast are available at the door, where donations will be accepted.
