Thousands were expected to come out to the FOP Lodge to enjoy their decades-long tradition of good food and good company.

The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge #21 held their annual Pancakes Day Saturday morning (10/6/18). Money raised from the event will help cover general operating costs for the lodge and their Cops and Kids event, as well as other local charities. Aside from helping the community in a monetary way, the day gives people a chance to get to know their local policemen and women of the past and present.

"Number one, it's a great fundraiser," said Michael Watkins, President of the lodge. "Number two, it's a great chance for the public to interact with police officers in a different setting where they just see us as regular people."

Current and retired police, as well as their families, helped dish out the pancakes and sausage breakfast.

The Pancake Day is the lodge's largest fundraiser of the year. They expect to raise around $3,000 by the time the day is done.
