Spring brings pancake breakfast, egg hunt
Last updated 4/2/2009 at Noon
Once again, the Fallbrook Community Center is putting on its annual Pancake Breakfast and Spring Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 11.
Approximately ten North County firefighters, three reserves and eight Explorer Scouts will start the event by cooking and serving the pancake breakfast from 7:30 to 10 a.m. at the center.
The Fallbrook Firefighters Association, which has been doing the breakfast for almost 20 years, is planning for more than 300 breakfasts, which include pancakes, ham, orange juice and milk.
The cost for the breakfast is $2 per child (12 years and under) and $4 per adult. All proceeds go to the community center.
After breakfast, families can head over to La Paloma School’s sports field, where the free Spring Egg Hunt will be held.
Starting at 10:30 a.m., egg hunts will be held for three different age groups: 5- and 6-year-olds, 7- and 8-year-olds and 9-, 10- and 11-year-olds.
This year, the 2- to 4-year-olds will have their own game booth and visit with the Easter Bunny instead of an egg hunt.
Members of National Charity League are helping to prepare 2,000 eggs and more surprises for the children.
Other sponsors of this event include Friends of Fallbrook Community Center, Fallbrook Elementary School District, Major Market, Albertsons, Fallbrook Village Rotary Club, North County Welding Supply and the County of San Diego Department of Parks and Recreation.
The Fallbrook Community Center and La Paloma School are both located on Heald Lane off of Fallbrook Street. For more information, contact the community center at (760) 728-1671.
