Pancake feed raises nearly $8,000

March 11, 2009


The American Legion Dorsey-Liberty Post No. 14 raised $7,900 Saturday during its 60th Legion Pancake Day.

Post members and volunteers served 1,060 guests, said Don Acher, a post member. “It was just more than we can handle, and that’s good,” he said.

Funds will be donated to the American Legion baseball program to help with equipment and travel expenses this summer.

The pancake feed is a Lawrence tradition that George Starkey, Delbert Mathia and Harold Fisher started.

I went to my first AL pancake feed a few years ago and try to get to them whenever I can. I had no idea how fun they would be. There's something inexplicably nice about sitting at a long picnic table eating pancakes with a bunch of strangers. The mood is always incredible, and the food is fantastic -- it's the only place I let myself have sausage.

Mmm. Sausage. Now I've got a hankerin'. Wonder when the next one is????

Incredible job by the volunteers but I couldn't help but wonder that if they needed help, where were all of the kids that benefit from the proceeds. It seems that they could have been helping out.
