FAIRFIELD, NJ - On Sunday, Fairfield residents came out to support their Volunteer Fire Department at the company's annual Pancake Breakfast. Each year the event benefits the Fairfield Exempt Firemen's Association which in turns supports the firefighters training and education. The pancakes were "all-you-can-eat" and were served with sausage, juice, milk and coffee. Fairfield Mayor James Gasparini stopped in to enjoy the fresh breakfast and thank the firefighters for all of their efforts.
