Pancakes For Paradise: Breakfast Fundraiser for the Victims of the Butte County Fire
Pancakes For Paradise: Sunday, Dec. 2, 8-11 am
The Great Freshwater Community Pancake Breakfast is happening once again this Sunday, December 2nd from 8-11 am, at the Freshwater Community Hall. It’s still only $6 for adults, $4 for the older kids, and the younger kids always eat for free. The Freshwater Community Hall is located at 49 Grange Road in Eureka (though really it’s in the historic Wrangletown neighborhood of downtown Freshwater, and in the big red building you can’t miss next to Garfield Elementary School).
Everyone is welcome for what’s considered the best breakfast deal on the Humboldt pancake circuit, according to our local hotcake aficionados. And here’s something extra-special you didn’t know: 50% of the net proceeds of this breakfast will be donated to those affected by the Butte County fires.
It’s Pancakes for Paradise– and your breakfast this Sunday is for an especially good cause! You can help support the mission. How? Just by eating pancakes and eggs and sausage and ham and mini-cinnamon rolls and hot French Roast coffee and Laura’s famous homemade salsa and then eating some more. Solidarity with neighbors helping neighbors while eating. That’s the American and Santa way! And don’t worry about cleaning up the dishes after eating pancakes with your friends. We’ll take care of that. Just eat and be merry and thankfully so.
Garfield Elementary School will also be holding their Holiday Dutch Lottery upstairs until noon, too. You can win a variety of gifts and goodies at the same time with those proceeds helping benefit the academic activities of Garfield School’s students. Come join in the fun and enjoy the holiday cheer with us.
Humboldt has been good to us– all of us– and now is time for thinking about others and giving back.
Kym has reminded us through her articles here of the good efforts of our Humboldt folks who helped those affected by the devastating fires in Butte County. Our volunteer fire crews, the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Posse Search and Rescue, Diana Totten, and so many local residents responded in force with their caring support. The residents of Freshwater and our all-volunteer Freshwater Community Hall want to join in and help, too, by donating half of the net profits of this pancake breakfast to those in need.
