Good food, good friends and all for good cause at the Fraternal Order of Police annual pancake day. 

For the past 21 years, the pancake day has grown into the FOP Lodge’s biggest fundraiser. The money raised from the event not only helps with the upkeep of the lodge, but also the various children programs in the area they support, including their “Cops and Kids” program, where law enforcement and local kids shop together to buy presents for the kids’ families. But supporting their efforts is just part of the reason why people keep coming back to this annual event. 

"One, obviously its a fundraiser for our lodge, but two it gives police officers and those who support police officers a chance to interact with the public in a positive way," says Michael Watkins, President of the FOP Lodge.

Watkins says that they can expect a couple of thousand people between they time they open up at 6 to when they stop serving at 1.
