The much anticipated Scotch Plains Rescue Squad’s 12th annual Pancake Breakfast will take place on Sunday, April 3, 2022, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at its building located at 1916 Bartle Avenue. This event is hosted by the Scotch Plains Rescue Squad Auxiliary, which raises funds for the all-volunteer squad.
All-you-can-eat pancakes, coffee and sausages will be offered for just a $5.00 per person entry fee, (children 5 and under eat free). There will also be a raffle for baskets, which are filled with gifts and goodies donated by the community and area businesses.
It’s clear by the number of people who attend that it’s something the community looks forward to every year. So, come out with your family and friends and enjoy a hearty, delicious breakfast along with good conversation. It’s a nice way to spend a Sunday morning. And for those with mobility issues, downstairs dining will be available.
The Scotch Plains Rescue Squad Auxiliary meets once a month, and its “grass roots” function is to assist the Squad in many capacities – from holding fundraisers and providing meals during crises to performing outreach to squad and fellow auxiliary members. Members also attend town functions, such as fairs, concerts and holiday events, in order to connect with the community and promote Squad interest.
If anyone is interested in becoming a member of the Auxiliary, stop by the Squad building one evening to pick up an application, or go to https://www.scotchplainsrescuesquad.com/the-auxiliary/.
