Merion’s Fire Chief was the first to arrive at a house fire in Villanova this summer. Arriving from a personal errand, he was without his protective gear. But with three people trapped inside, one a 102 year old, his training and his instincts took over. With no oxygen mask, he braved the kitchen fire’s excessive heat and heavy smoke, and safely evacuated everyone. Suffering severe smoke inhalation in the process, he spent several weeks recovering in the hospital.
Gratefully, Chief Hayden is now better and the Rotary Club of Ardmore wants to make this year’s Pancake Breakfast an extra special opportunity to thank him and his fellow firefighters who serve us selflessly everyday.
The Ardmore Rotary Club invites you to their Annual Pancake Breakfast 7:00 AM to Noon on Sunday, October 7, at the Merion Fire Company in Ardmore. Tickets are $7.00.
This year, Bob and Ron’s Worldwide Stereo is sponsoring the event, raffling off a 50” Sony HD Plasma TV. Tickets for this beautiful TV are just $10.00 each. Amazon sells this same model for $1200. Raffle tickets are available from Dr. David Dillon, DDS. Dr. Dillon can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, ShelterBox, will have a display. ShelterBox is an international disaster relief charity that delivers emergency shelter, warmth and dignity to people affected by disaster worldwide. ShelterBox is a project partner with International Rotary.
