Pancake Breakfast – Oct 9th

pancake-collageCalling all Knights to another monthly edition of “Let’s make a meal!” Come
on down and put some earnest effort behind our pledges of charity and good
eats for mankind.

Our Pancake Breakfast helps our council raise money for the parish and at the same time build a strong council.  Knights working together are also playing together.  If  you have not participated in a fish fry, pig pull, Oktoberfest, or pancake breakfast, you are missing an opportunity to work with others, learn more about your fellow knights, meet and greet  new parishioners, and all the while making life-long friends.  We are building our church community.

We need Knights to help staff the kitchen, serving line, and dining hall duties, and help with setup and teardown. If you can’t help, then at least support the breakfast by coming and eating, and bringing some family and friends along. The rest of us will be happy to serve you.

It’s real simple… if you are a Knight, you need to be there to contribute
to the success of this ongoing fundraiser for STM School and Church, and for
other charitable matters that we elect to help with throughout the year.
And if you cannot attend, at least say a prayer for a successful breakfast.

Of course, our Sunday pancake breakfasts are open to everyone and make a great opportunity for you to bring along family, a neighbor, or friends.  It is your chance to show them your church and share your faith with them.

Gene and Lisa Keeling will not be available on Sunday, so we have a critical
shortage in the kitchen to overcome. We may be one or two short in the
dining hall as well. Please make an extra effort to help, especially if you
can be there at 7 am in the kitchen.

Pancake Breakfast Back on Target

pancakes 091414Tom Stoffel reported that our pancake breakfast today was a great success. Lots to do, many joined in.

Tom said, “Sincere thanks to the Knights who stepped up to help us pull off a successful Pancake Breakfast today! PGK Bill Jackson, newer Knight Ed Van Duinen and Knight-in-transfer Matt Miller were there at 7 am and took it the distance today, racking up about 6 hours of heaven credits apiece! They all helped out with a number of different tasks, from kitchen to serving to mess hall to cleaning. Brother Matt also proved his prowess on the griddle, serving up some of the softest, no-knife-required pancakes we’ve had. Brother William Boyd helped with a lot of the dirty work, coming all the way from Pittsboro to keep clean plates, forks, and cups ready for use. And Brother Newton Grant cooked up a storm to cover for the big hole left by Matt Raynor’s absence.”

Tom was also very complimentary with others, too. “Much thanks as well to Lisa and Ariana Keeling, who helped with kitchen setup, cooking, and cleanup. And thank God for that, because our regular helper Peggy was missing today too.” and

“Thanks to the usual Knights, Men’s Club and CDA regulars too – Brendan, Dario, Gene K, Gene H, Gene D, David D, Charlotte, Bob, Chuck, Will, Margaret, Seth, Terry, O’Neil, and whomever I may have missed (it’s always dangerous to try to name everyone). We were missing a lot of regulars today, but a lot of people stepped up to help us pull it off.

Special thanks as well to Elizabeth Fixler, who helped us clean up and tear down the hall, and set up for a very large TYM evening session, as we often do. If you see her, please thank her. Even better, visit her religious items store in downtown Chapel Hill – 108 W Rosemary St, Chapel Hill, NC 27516 (919) 918-4090. She could use our support too.” Tom wrote.

It takes a lot of people to make a breakfast, dinner, or Oktoberfest possible. These events are “bonding” events in that new long-lasting friendships are forged. How about you? Are you ready to jump in and make our next breakfast an even better success?
