TICKET TAKERS were a cadre of firefighters.

Firefighters welcomed some 500 friends and neighbors of L.A.F.D.’s Station 61 who feasted on pancakes while hearing about prevention and emergency preparedness at the Sept. 9 Open House.
City fire chief Brian Cummings and local councilmen were among the guests at the fundraiser at 5821 W. Third St. Donors included local markets, International House of Pancakes, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and more.
“We made $3,000 to purchase fitness equipment for the men,” said Lyn MacEwen Cohen, president of the event’s sponsor, First-In Fire Foundation. Miracle Mile Civic Coalition served as co-sponsor.
