RIVERTON TWP. — Mason County is blessed to have over 100 people who serve on fire departments who dedicate their time and expertise to keeping us safe. All of the 11 fire departments in Mason County are staffed by personnel who receive little or no payment for their efforts. While tax dollars fund most of these departments, many of the departments rely on donations from the public to help purchase items that may be deemed “above and beyond” the minimum. Several of these departments hold annual fundraisers.

On Saturday, April 25, the Riverton Firefighters Association, which is made up of personnel from Riverton Township Fire Department, will hold its annual pancake breakfast at Riverton Township Hall, next to the fire station, at 2122 W. Hawley Road, from 7:30 a.m. to noon.

Cost is $7 for anyone 8-years-old or older, under 8 is free. That buys you an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast with locally made maple syrup, pork sausage, peaches and/or apple sauce. A silent auction and baked good sale will also be held during the breakfast.
