Endres scholarship breakfast Saturday

The Lake Delta Volunteer Fire Department holds the sixth annual Kevin Endres Scholarship breakfast on Saturday at its 8508 Elmer Hill Road Road station.

The breakfast from 8 a.m. to noon will include pancakes, eggs, and sausage as well as drinks. The price will be $5 presale tickets and $6 at the door.

The scholarship honors Kevin Endres who was "a very active member of not only the fire department, but also a member of many community activities in the Rome and Lee area," department officials said. His family is still active in the area with his youngest son Michael a member at the department and one of the recipients of the Oneida County volunteer firefighter for 2012.

Those interested in applying for the scholarship should contact their school’s guidance department. It’s part of the Dollars for Scholars organization and follows the guidelines and deadlines set by that group.

Preference for this scholarship will be given to children of members in good standing of the Lake Delta Fire Department, but applicants are anonymous under Dollars for Scholars rules.

Those who are unable to attend but would like to send a donation can do so by mailing it to: KWE Scholarship, c/o Lake Delta Fire Department, P.O. Box 596, Rome, NY 13442-0596.
