Had a great morning volunteering on the early (7am!) shift with the Junior League of Palo Alto-Mid Peninsula at the 15th annual Menlo Park Firefighters Pancake Breakfast. There was an impressive turnout with children running around dressed as their firefighting heroes and parents socializing over Hobees coffee cake, Coffee and Juice from Trader Joe's, and fruits, sausage and pancakes prepared by the awesome firefighters themselves. Demonstrations on repelling down buildings and automobile rescue rounded out an exciting morning where kids bounced around from attraction to attraction. Last year they raised $8000, but with a ride on the fire truck to school already at $2500 for the silent auction when we left, we're hoping the raised much much more! Love this community!
