Hot off the griddle!

Hot off the griddle!

We are back again! Sun Lakes Rotary Club will hold its 19th anual Pancake Breakfast on Sunday, November 8 at the Oakwood Country Club Ballroom in Sun Lakes! Our master flippers are practicing daily to re-ignite their talents to make ‘just so’ pancakes, both regular and blueberry pancakes! Each year we think they can get no better, but they surprise us! The planners are hard at work, and the servers are getting ready to serve you with class!

In addition to our pancakes, bacon and sausage will be served, complimented by orange juice and hot coffee. But wait! We have a hot new menu item this year! Gluten-free pancakes are on the menu! Yup! You read it here! Gluten-free pancakes!

We start serving at 7:30 a.m. and continue until 12:30 p.m. Enjoy a leisurely breakfast and take part in our great individual raffles held at 9:00 a.m., 10:30 a.m. and noon. You must be present to win when the raffle numbers are called at those designated times. During the morning, we will have our ever-popular silent auction with great items you simply cannot live without! Successful bidders need not be present when the silent auction closes. We have a great surprise special raffle courtesy of our great friends, BROOKSIES! Yup. Just close your eyes and think of a great prize for some lucky surprise raffle winner! We won’t tell! But you will love it when you come through the doors Sunday morning and see it! Throughout the morning DJ Scott Faver will be providing toe tapping music along with fun stimulating conversation! A great morning of fun and a great breakfast for $9 for advanced ticket sales and $10 at the door.
