Last Sunday was another successful Annual Pancake Breakfast for Fire Station 71 with Fire Station 37 helping out with the festivities as well. The community was able to mingle with our first responders who serve the Bel-Air area, as well as treated to a LAFD Air Operations helicopter flyover, the “Solid Gold Sound" by the UCLA Marching Band, exploration of antique fire engines, antique cars, a chance for a jewelry raffle, t-shirts, tours of the Fire Station and expertly-prepared, delicious pancakes. Swag was also available at the the Bel-Air/Beverly Crest Neighborhood Council booth.
The BAA is grateful to BAA member Brian Studwell and Robert Ringler, who run the Adopt Fire Station 71 Foundation, and our community members who donated funds to show our appreciation. The money raised is used to pay for amenities that the City of Los Angeles does not provide, such as, major electrical panel work, furniture, a washing machine, a new refrigerator and room dividers.
