The Shelby Volunteer Fire Company is putting on its annual pancake breakfast this Sunday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. as part of the Maple Sunday celebration. Pancakes will be served with real maple syrup from Wolfe Farms in Middleport.

The event will be at Shelby’s recreation hall on Route 63, just south of the village of Medina.

The fire company is hoping to raise $5,000 at the event, which would pay for two sets of turn-out gear for firefighters. The fire company is required by the federal Occupational Health and Safety Administration to replace turnout gear every 10 years, firefighter Michael Lamar said.
