DURHAM, N.H. -- The UNH Greek System, in conjunction with the Durham Fire Department and Durham: It’s Where U Live, will host the second annual Durham Community Pancake Breakfast Saturday, Sept. 22, 2007, from 8-11 a.m. at the Oyster River Middle School. The event, which is aimed at getting people to come together within the Durham community, will benefit the Durham Public Library.
Along with the pancake breakfast, there will be children’s games and activities, and demonstrations by the Durham Fire Department. A small admission fee will benefit the Durham Public Library.
“Members of the department look forward to interacting with community members and flipping some pancakes,” said Durham Fire Chief Peter O’Leary. “We welcome the chance to interact with residents and students in the Greek system in a positive way. This is one more way we can meet people before an emergency.”
Every year, the Durham Fire Department, the New Hampshire State Fire Marshal’s Office and the University of New Hampshire Greek Affairs Office host a proactive fire safety program for all recognized fraternities and sororities that gives hands on training especially designed for Greek housing.
Durham: It’s Where U Live is a grassroots organization working to increase respect and understanding between University of New Hampshire students and their surrounding community.
