Hawthorn Fire readies for annual pancakes and sausage dinner

HAWTHORN – A community Thanksgiving tradition will return to Hawthorn this weekend, as the town’s fire department hosts its annual pancakes and sausage dinner.

“It’s a tradition for a lot of us,” fire department member Michael Rearick said of the three-day event which will be held Nov. 29 through Dec. 1 at the Hawthorn fire hall along Main Street.

According to event organizers, the annual event began more than 50 years ago as a fundraiser for the Hawthorn Fire Department the weekend following Thanksgiving and leading into the first day of deer season.

“No one was really doing breakfasts for hunters at that time,” Hawthorn Fire Chief Curtis Kiehl said, noting that in its early days the event was a 24-hour operation Friday through Monday morning.

Over the years, there have been changes in the hours and offerings. This year, meals will be served from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 29 and Sunday, Dec. 1; and from 4 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 30.
