Hot Off the Griddle
February 24, 2108 - Murphy Police Explorer Post 2005 held a pancake fundraiser benefiting the Sgt. Kyle Kucauskas Scholarship Foundation and to assist with Post expenses. While busily flipping pancakes, Murphy Detective Sarah Ashmore said that they were pleased with the turn out considering the weather. They had chosen this date and time because it would run simultaneously with the City of Murphy Rainbow Trout Roundup. However, the city event was postponed due to rain.
