12:01 April 28th marks the opening of fishing season and the 49th annual Sportsman’s Breakfast!! Sandy Fire District continues to celebrate this event in an unusual but “tasteful” way!!
Since 1963 Sandy’s Main Fire Station has transformed its engine bay into a 19 hour, feasting paradise. Sandy Volunteer Firefighters will have been serving food for 7 hours by the time fishing season officially begins.
This is a fantastic traditional Fire House style spread with pancakes, ham, and eggs prepared just about any way you want them. “Everyone knows firefighters love to eat great food, we have a reputation for being terrific cooks too!” said, Firefighter Glenn Yeager “This also allows us to reach out to our community in a meaningful way. All proceeds from The Breakfast go back to our citizens in the form of scholarships for local high school students and Christmas Baskets to families in need”.

LIFE SAVING HELMETS
Once you enter Sandy Fire District’s Main station you will be greeted with the sounds and smells of a wonderful family style meal and a host of safety booths and information, you can even purchase a properly fitted helmet (Bike $7, Skate/All Sport $12 or Ski $25)! Any opportunity to help save lives and you can be sure Sandy Fire will take advantage of it.
The only ‘catch’ is —the head that the helmet is for MUST be present so that firefighters can PROPERLY fit it! NO exceptions.
The helmet booth will be operating from 5-8 p.m. on Friday and again from 8 a.m. — 12 noon on Saturday. It can take a bit of time to properly fit a helmet, so set some aside during your stay at the station and SAVE A LIFE !
