Hasbrouck Heights, NJ - On the morning of September 27th, the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department’s Appeal Letter Committee prepared breakfast for the department members. The Breakfast is a department tradition before all the members ‘walk the town’ dropping off the Annual Appeal Letter, the department’s biggest fundraiser, to residents of Hasbrouck Heights, NJ. The preparations were led by Appeal Letter Chairman, former Chief Kevin Todd and Lieutenant Bernie Valente, who along with the rest of the committee prepared french toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, coffee, tea and orange juice. It was a hearty breakfast for a group of firefighters with a long day of walking ahead of them.
