We hope to see you at the next community event! For more information, call 515-978-7998 or email.

Pancake Breakfast and Food Drive

The Waukee Firefighters’ Association hosts its annual Pancake Breakfast Event each spring at the Waukee Public Safety Building. This family-friendly event draws hundreds of residents who enjoy “all you care to eat” pancakes and sausage. Plus, kids can burn off all of that syrup-induced energy with inflatables and fire truck rides! Guests are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items or cash donations for the Waukee Area Christian Services Food Pantry.

Date: May 13, 2023
