The Scottsdale City Council and the Scottsdale Firefighters Association will be hosting an old-fashioned pancake breakfast to raise money to repair flood damage to the Scottsdale Little Red School Historical Museum.
Funds raised from the community breakfast, which will be held Dec. 9, will go toward the repair and restoration of the museum and its collection which suffered flood damage after a water heater broke in September. During the flood, the museum sustained significant damage to its historical archives and memorabilia.
“The Scottsdale Historical Society and the museum play vital roles in our community,” Councilman Guy Phillips said in a press release. “They not only preserve our past, they help us connect with it.”
The pancake breakfast will take place at the Little Red School House Museum from 8-10 a.m. Suggested donation is $20 per person, and Scottsdale Firefighters Association members will be providing service.
“Understanding where we came from makes us better prepared to build our community’s future,” Councilwoman Suzanne Klapp said in a statement. “The Scottsdale Historical Society and the museum are wonderful assets and they are worth investing in.”
The Little Red School House Historical Museum is operated by the Scottsdale Historical Society, which works to preserve the history and cultural heritage of the city and the Southwest.
