Holiday Weekend Event: Rotary Club’s Annual Pancake Day Serves Up More Than Breakfast

Published: December 06, 2018 at 08:21 am


Hundreds of people showed up hungry for all-you-can-eat breakfast at the Newtown Rotary Club’s 58th Annual Pancake Day in the Edmond Town Hall on December 1.

Fortunately, there were plenty of cooks in the kitchen to help out at the community event, including members of the Rotary Club, longtime flapjack flipper Dr Robert Grossman, and First Selectmen Dan Rosenthal, who whipped up the pancake mix before it went on the griddle.

Rotary Club member Pat Caruso said this year that students from Newtown High School’s Interact Club were onsite helping clear tables and that local vendors Maple Craft Foods, BD Provisions, and Butcher’s Best donated their products.

While families and friends mingled together at packed tables in the Alexandria Room, Santa Claus came around to meet and take pictures with children.

The Rotary Club’s Pancake Day also featured live entertainment, with performances by students from Lathrop School of Dance and the Newtown Centre of Classical Ballet & Voice as well as Rotary Club member Ken Harper on piano.
