The annual pancake breakfast hosted by the Hudson Fire Department, with assistance from the Hudson Lions Club, took place Sunday morning at the fire hall on Walnut Street.

It appeared to be well-attended, judging from number of people coming through the doors over the course of an hour at mid-morning.

In addition to the pancakes cooked on the spot, the menu consisted of sausage, scrambled eggs, sweet rolls, fruit, orange juice, yogurt, milk and coffee.

Children were able to climb aboard a fire engine and a bicycle from Art Doyle’s Spokes & Pedals was raffled off.

The money raised through freewill donations for the breakfast will be used to purchase equipment. Hudson businesses donated much of the food for the breakfast.
