Following a one year COVID-19 break, members of Edgecomb Fire Department renewed their traditional pancake breakfast fundraiser at the firehouse on Saturday, July 3.
“It’s the start of getting back together,” said Fire Chief Roy Potter. Potter added that the department was without it longtime member and benefactor, Steve Fenton, who had succumbed to the virus while at his winter home in New Jersey. “We talked all the time on the phone,” said Potter.
He said Fenton was instrumental in securing several of the department’s trucks over the years. “He will be sadly missed.”
Potter said the company plans to resume its annual open house in October.
Proceeds from the breakfast go to the department’s auxiliary which then is able to buy needed equipment without having to add a burden to taxpapyers, said Potter.
