Breakfast fundraisers are popular in the Lehigh Valley. They are a great way to help support the volunteers who risk all in case tragedy strikes.   This Sunday morning, my husband and I drove north on Bushkill Center Road to visit one of the largest in the area–the Bushkill Township Volunteer Bushkill TownshipFire Co.’s monthly buffet breakfast.   On such a beautiful day, it was no surprise to find a nearly filled parking lot.

The breakfast is pay at the door – $7 for adults, $5 for seniors, and $4 for children.  Age 6 and under are free.  We were greeted with smiles.  At the table there was a large jar for additional donations, and a raffle for a prized custom-made Martin Guitar (on display and beautiful!).  Also on sale were assorted glassware with the fire company’s bright red logo.

Once inside, we made our way toward the buffet line.  On the way we passed a table with a huge box of assorted donuts, and two large bowls of canned fruit.  Up front, there were two buffet lines with a condiment station at one end, all in a U-shaped formation.  Condiments included syrup, two fruit toppings, cheese, and ketchup.  These folks know what they’re doing.

Breakfast foods included scrambled eggs, thin slices of scrapple, sausage links, mountains of bacon, regular toast,  thick-sliced French Toast sprinkled with cinnamon, pancakes, waffles, potatoes, sauteed onions, creamed chipped beef,  and probably some things I’ve forgotten.  After we filled our plates (thick styrofoam with heavy duty plastic utensils), we found two vacant spots at one of the long tables then returned to the drink station for coffee, juice and water.   Coffee cups were large.   There was a restaurant-sized milk dispenser with both white and chocolate milk.  Juices included orange, apple, and pineapple.

Around us families of all ages, young and old, talked, laughed, and ate. The buffet was continually re-filled.  Scrambled eggs were moist, still hot when I’d put them on my plate.  Bushkill Fire TruckI especially enjoyed the sausage links and pancakes, very tasty.   M. mentioned how well organized the breakfast was.  As plates were emptied, volunteers magically appeared to take them away.  In the kitchens, cooks kept busy cooking to refill the buffet.  We even saw a high chair brought over to one table.

Occasionally during the meal, announcements were made about upcoming events – from Haunted Hayrides to a Craft Fair coming up in a few weeks.   It was a lively, enjoyable morning, made possible by a well-organized team of workers.

The breakfasts are held every 2nd Sunday at the Bushkill Township Volunteer Fire Co. Hall at 155 Firehouse Lane.  That is just off of Bushkill Center Road, behind the Township Hall at 1114 Bushkill Center Road, Nazareth, PA.  The next breakfast will be on Sunday, October 11, 2009 from 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.   Try it!

A thought

“When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?" ........... "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?" ...... "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet. ... Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.” ...... ― A.A. Milne
