Senior center hosts annual pancake fundraiser
May 11, 2010
The Issaquah Valley Senior Center, 75 N.E. Creek Way, is hosting its annual pancake breakfast fundraiser from 8:30-11:30 a.m. May 15.
Jack Steidl, a 91-year-old retired military and commercial pilot, will bugle hungry supporters into the “Mess Hall” for hot and fluffy pancake stacks. Steidl will also be in uniform to honor Armed Forces Day. Mayor Ava Frisinger will dish up your food, as will volunteers from the City Council and other organizations.
Aegis of Issaquah will sponsor food for the event and Fischer Meats will donate sausages. Cost is $5 for adults and $2.50 for children.
“We have an amazing amount of activities here that are ongoing, like our art classes, our Tuesday after-lunch lecture series and special events, like our Literary Tea, that we don’t charge for but incur costs for,” Senior Center Executive Director Courtney Jaren said. “When people support us, they don’t just support one program, but all the wonderful things we do here at the center.”
