The 24th annual Backus Lions fly-in pancake breakfast will be held from 7:30 a.m. to noon Sunday, July 28, at the Backus Airport just west of Highway 371.
The pancake breakfast, a benefit for the Backus Fire Department and First Responders, will cost $6 at the door ($5 in advance) and $3 for children under 12. Fly-in pilots eat free. Sausage, juice, coffee and milk will also be part of the breakfast.
Schedule permitting, the North Memorial Medivac helicopter will land at 11 a.m. A demonstration will be given with the “jaws of life” rescue apparatus on an old car, weather permitting.
Those who attend can watch airplanes land and take off, talk to pilots, firefighters and First Responders and see a fire truck up close. Raffle tickets will be sold at the event with a drawing for prizes at noon. People need not be present to win.
The $5 advance tickets are available from Backus Lions members at the Polish Stand at Godfrey’s on Saturdays or from Backus Fire Department members and First Responders.
