Fundraiser to help firefighters

SOUTH POINT — A pancake breakfast is scheduled for April 6 to raise funds for the South Point firefighters association.

According to Mathew Van Winkle, the proceeds will go toward buying gear and equipment.

One thing he said it would help is for a woman’s association being started for the department and this will allow them to purchase jackets and items for calls.

“That way, people will know they’re part of the department,” he said.

The all-you-can-eat breakfast features pancakes, bacon and eggs and is $8 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under and will take place at the fire department, located at 104 Eisenhower St. in South Point.

“We’ll start at 7 a.m. and keep going while people are showing up,” he said.
