Start Canada Day off with maple syrup and Chilliwack’s heroes

Chilliwack Charitable Firefighters’ Society hosting annual pancake breakfast

There’s no better way to celebrate being Canadian than giving a pat on the back to our local heroes, and then putting a pat of butter on a stack of flapjacks.

This July 1, the Chilliwack Firefighters’ Charitable Society is once again hosting its Canada Day Pancake Breakfast. They’re hoping to see the community come out in full support, and bring their appetites.

For just a $5 donation per person, there will be pancakes and syrup aplenty.

The breakfast is being held at Hall 1, at 45950 Cheam Avenue, beginning at 8 a.m. and wrapping up at 11 a.m.

All proceeds will go back toward the society and its endeavors.

They will also be selling their brand new t-shirts, with a fresh new design.

The goals of the Chilliwack Firefighters’ Charitable Society are to: raise money for the B.C. Firefighters Burn Fund, raise money to assist youth and youth programs, provide bursaries for scholastic achievement and continuing education, raise money for medical and health care research, assist members of the community of Chilliwack by supporting community-minded programs and to provide relief from poverty.
