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, 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
Along with the pancake breakfast, there will be children’s
games and activities, and demonstrations by the 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 UNH 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 UNH students
and their surrounding community.
