Shrine Club 50th annual Pancake Day a success
At this years annual Shriners Pancake Day, 778 servings of pancakes were served, in addition to all-you-can-eat pancakes. One of the things that makes the pancakes so good is that they are mixed by hand. Larry Hawthorne, shown attending to his duties, has been the mixer since 1978, with the help of mixers Ed Grabow and Collin Nack. Photo supplied
MONROE - The members of the Green County Shrine Club are grateful for everybody who supported the 50th annual Pancake Day on the Square, which raised over $14,000, making it a huge success. The Shriners have been holding Pancake Day since 1968. At one time, Pancake Day was a 12-hour affair with serving from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.; two shifts split the all-day task.
