Pepperell Scouting Annual Pancake Breakfast May 10, 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.

Location: Prescott Grange Hall, 12 Park St.

The Pepperell Troop 13 and Pack 55 Scout Pancake Breakfast is designed as both a fundraising tool and to enhance community fellowship. Fundraising is a necessary component for the Cub Scouts to maintain affordable registration fees and to allow the Pack to provide quality programs to its Scouts.

Pepperell Pack 55's Pancake Breakfast will generate funds for upcoming Cub Scout activities, help alleviate some of the costs associated with events, engage the Pepperell Packs in a service event and allow the opportunity to make a donation to the Prescott Grange for the upkeep and restoration of the Grange Hall, a local Pepperell landmark.

The entire community is invited to come and take advantage of an affordable and hearty breakfast that will help fund the many positive programs that the Cub Scouts provides for young men. The proceeds of the breakfast will be used to help fund Pack events including camping trips, meetings and the many educational activities the organization provides for the Scouts.

The menu will include fruit cups, eggs, bacon, toast and drinks (juice/coffee). The cost of the breakfast is $8 for adults and $5 for seniors and children under 13, at the door. All Scouts will only be requested to pay $5, irrespective of Scout age.

COME HUNGRY ..... LEAVE HAPPY!
