Firehouse Breakfast Comeback

Ends: 11/9/2019 - 10:00 AM

It has been over 10 years since we held our last breakfast. Over the last few years we have had numerous requests to do another one.
This time, instead of at the firehouse, we will be cooking breakfast at the Park District during their Countdown to Christmas Vendor Fair. So come out enjoy some good food and visit the vendors.
We will be providing biscuits and gravy, bacon, sausage, pancakes, and beverages. Some things will be the same as how we used to do it, and some stuff will be different, but for certain it will be a great time with family and friends.
We will provide updates on the Facebook event page as more details come out.
