Pancakes and Community
By Susan Manning
Nothing says community quite like a pancake breakfast. And this year sees the return of the Ashland High School Student Council community-wide pancake breakfast.
The event had been on hiatus since the beginning of the pandemic, with the last one held in 2019.
Teacher advisor to the council Josh Wiczer said previous events have brought in more than 200 people.
“Typically we get around 200. However, we haven’t run this since 2019 because of Covid, so we’re really not sure what the turnout will look like,“ he said.
In other years, they have flipped more than 500 pancakes at the breakfast.
This year’s community-wide pancake breakfast will be held Sunday, Nov. 20, from 9 to 11:30 AM, in the high school cafeteria, 65 East Union St. As of press time, the event was going to be all you can eat pancakes with sausage and/or bacon. Cost is $5 per person and it is open to the entire community. No advanced tickets are necessary. Those attending will pay at the door with cash or checks.
Wiczer said it’s a fun event and an opportunity to mingle with fellow community members.
“Come on out for a cheap breakfast and an opportunity to spend time with your friends and neighbors,“ he said.
