e Princeton Junction Fire Company would like to thank everyone who came out to our pancake breakfast on Sunday, October 9th. The event was a great success and we hope everyone enjoyed the food, meeting the fire fighters and learning about fire safety. The Fire Company would like to recognize PJ’s Pancake House, McCaffrey’s, Wegmans and the Dlabik family for their generous donations and continued support of our event. We would also like to thank the West Windsor Police Department and Mercer County for allowing us to use their electronic sign boards to advertise the event, which definitely helped spread the word, and the Lawrence Road Fire Company for the use of their fire safety trailer. Thank you again and we hope to see everyone next year!!
