Elmer City's volunteer firefighters are preparing to put on their 55th Annual Pancake Feed Saturday, and they're hoping you'll attend.

There's a good chance of that, judging from the past experience of the popular fundraiser. Firefighter Brad Dudley said the folks who man the fire engines at Okanogan County Fire District No. 2 usually feed more than 300 people at the event.

"It's huge support," Dudley said, noting that more than 50 businesses have donated items for a raffle and silent auction also happening at the event that go to support equipment needs for the firefighters.

They answered the call 17 times last year, including long stints away from home to fight the North Star Fire, during last year's record-breaking fire season, the second in as many years.

The pancake feed will go from 4:30 to 8 p.m., Saturday at Coulee Dam Town Hall. Tickets are $8, or $15 for a couple. The whole family can eat for $25.
