KVFD monthly breakfast set for Feb. 25


KENT—The Kent Volunteer Fire Department will hold its next “Big Win” Community Breakfast Feb. 25 from 7 to 11:30 a.m. at the fire department headquarters, 28 Maple St. 

The Kent Volunteer Fire Department is holding a series of Big Win breakfasts at its headquarters at 28 Maple St. The next one is Feb. 25.

The breakfast will include eggs, pancakes, bacon, sausage, juice and coffee. Children will enjoy pancakes in the form of Mickey Mouse or dinosaurs.

The monthly breakfasts were started before Covid but were recessed when the pandemic struck. “We’ve only been doing it again for 17 months,” said organizer Anne McAndrew during the January gathering, but said the fire department is “pretty happy” with the community’s response.

“The largest number we have served was 130,” she said, “but this morning we even had a reservation for seven people. That’s our first reservation.”

The event is a relaxed affair, with neighbors catching up on news and enjoying a breakfast in a community setting. But behind the scenes, the kitchen staff bustles as orders are processed, plated and delivered. McAndrew was appreciative of the volunteers’ aplomb. “They don’t break a sweat and stay cool as a cucumber,” she said. By contrast, the food makes its way to the diners “fresh and hot.”

Tickets are $8 for adults, $6 for seniors, children younger than 8, $5. Cash or check will be accepted.

For information call McAndrew at 203-788-6585 or email
