Breakfast more than pancakes

If there is one thing the people of Lawrence County do well, it’s throwing a pancake breakfast, especially the Ironton Rotary Club.

Saturday morning, the club continued its decades-long tradition of serving up large fluffy pancakes and sausage to the seemingly endless droves of hungry people.

And those who attended not only left with full bellies, but they also supported a worthy cause.

The money earned at the annual breakfast goes a long way to help the Rotarians with the club’s various community projects, such as sponsoring local scholarships, donating to charitable organizations and the beautiful fountain area in downtown Ironton.

The Rotary Club, and others who host these type of events, give people in the community a rare opportunity to mingle with those who they may not interact with otherwise. Young and old, affluent or not, everyone in the community is welcome to attend these breakfasts. If you have never attended one of these events, we encourage you to catch the next one so you can see firsthand the hard work that is required to make these events successful.

Just as many other civic groups well know, it takes a lot of dedicated volunteers to make events like these go off without a hitch. Thank you to the many Rotarians who woke up early on Saturday to prepare and serve the meal and drinks to all who attended.

Also a big thank you goes to all the local Boy Scouts who gave up their morning to assist the Rotary Club for another successful breakfast.
