What: Third annual Pancake Breakfast

Who: Cameron Park Fire Department Explorers Post 89

Where: 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park

When: Saturday, Dec. 1 from 8 a.m. to noon

Tickets: $5

Information: 530-672-7350

CAMERON PARK — If you’re planning to go Christmas shopping on Saturday, Dec. 1, why not start the morning off with a hearty breakfast?

The third annual Pancake Breakfast, sponsored by Cameron Park Fire Department Explorers Post 89, will be at the Cameron Park Community Services District’s community event center, 2502 Country Club Drive, from 8 a.m. to noon.

“When the community center opened, the CSD allowed us to utilize its facility,” Nick Pimlott, a firefighter said.

Pimlott is coordinating the breakfast with Capt. Mike Smith.

The explorers will prep the batter and start cracking eggs before the crack of dawn, Pimlott said.

“We will be ready to rock ‘n’ roll Saturday morning,” Pimlott said. “The explorers are going to be cooking, serving, bussing tables.”

In addition to pancakes and eggs, the breakfast will also include, biscuits and gravy, and orange juice, milk and coffee.

Cost is $5 per person with the proceeds benefitting Post 89. That includes sending seven cadets to an academy for additional fire training and purchasing new equipment such as helmets.

“The academy costs $300 per explorer,” Pimlott said. “They are able to go into live fire training environments under close supervision and get that experience.”

Pimlott said a raffle with various prizes will take place at the breakfast. The gift cards and other prizes for the raffle are donated by the families of the explorers and Cameron Park businesses.

A 2010 Ponderosa High School graduate, Pimlott started working as an explorer when he was a freshman. He became a firefighter shortly after he graduated from high school.

Currently, there are 12 explorers in the program, Pimlott said. When he started in the program, there were only eight explorers, counting himself.

For more information about the breakfast or Post 89 contact the fire department at 530-672-7350.
