On Friday and Saturday, November 6 & 7, the Santee Firefighters and the San Diego Sheriff’s Deputies (Santee Substation) joined together to put on the annual Santee Pancake Breakfast supporting needy local families. As in the past, Fire Station 4 on Cottonwood Ave. was the site for the two-day gastronomic gathering. Deputies served up the food as firefighters flipped sausages on a nearby grill. Coffee was provided by the great folks at Coffee Brake, and several other local businesses helped sponsor the event.
I was not able to make the Friday fest, but Saturday was quite busy while I was there. I wish I could tell you how good the food was, but because of a grand opening the same morning I didn’t have time. But the people there certainly seemed to be enjoying their meals, and you know firefighters love their food. If you missed this year, you can wait until next November, or you can contact Barbara Wallace at the Santee Sheriff’s Station (619-956-4000) to find out how you can still help out families this year.
