The Twentynine Palms Fire Department Explorer Post will host their annual pancake breakfast Saturday, October 19, at Fire Station 421 on Adobe Road. From 6 to 10 a.m., the Fire Explorers will be serving pancakes, eggs and sausage, as well as an assortment of drinks. The cost is $4 for adults and $2 for children under twelve years of age. The pancake breakfast is the major fundraiser for the explorers and will help send the explorers to the annual Fire Explorer Academy at Fort Irwin. And while you’re there, throw in a couple of dollars for a donation to the Muscular Dystrophy Association. Firefighters will hand out Trading Cards and Sparky the Fire Dog will be there to hug all of the kids, big and small. Come have breakfast with your Twentynine Palms Firefighters before watching the Pioneer Days Parade that starts at 10 a.m.
