From the entire community in the Glen Haven and Retreat area, THANK YOU to everyone who supported our 2022 pancake breakfast this year to help raise funds for our Glen Haven Area Volunteer Fire Department. This year’s efforts raised over $26,000 thanks to everyone who supported our event in one way or another.

The Glen Haven Volunteer Fire Department is a critical part of the emergency response community throughout southern Larimer County. The Department works closely with the Colorado State Patrol, Larimer County Sheriff's Department, Larimer County Emergency Services, the U.S. Forest Service, Rocky Mountain National Park, the Estes Valley Fire Protection District, Loveland Rural Fire Protection District, Estes Park Ambulance Service and other agencies to continue to provide emergency response to the Glen Haven community and the entire Estes Valley.

The pancake breakfast, along with other fundraising functions for the Glen Haven Fire Department, are coordinated and supported by the Glen Haven Auxiliary consisting of: Pat Brelig, Laura Brown, Lila Conrad , Eileen Croissant, Sue Engelland, Donna Evans, Stacey Fair, Sandy Grice, Sandra Hazlett, Marsha Hobert, Kelly Housewright, Linda Johnson, Jo McFadden, Sandy Reynolds, Carroll Martin, Gudi Spurlin, Betty Worthington, Polly Bennett, and Joanne Zagorda.

This year, 650 people enjoyed the pancake breakfast prepared by our fire department volunteers. The bake sale generated just over $1,000 with goods prepared by Glen Haven, Retreat and Estes Park residents alike. So many businesses and individuals donated to our silent auction with everything from gift certificates, to dinners, baskets of goodies, homemade items, you name it. The silent auction this year was record-setting and raised over $14,000! We want to thank and acknowledge the following for their donations to the auction:
