Several communities come together to raise support and fund local projects in Pratt County.
Fluffy pancakes, fried eggs and seasoned sausage patties were on the menu at the American Legion Lorraine Post 98’s annual community event Saturday, March 2 in Isabel, and a steady line of consumers kept cooks in the kitchen busy.
“We come over from Sawyer every year to support them, because they all come support our fire department supper,” said Pat Aubley.
Other visitors hailed from Pratt, Nashville, Coats, as well as Isabel and other surrounding communities.
Girl Scout member Bella Lumbreras, age 12, set up a table in the corner and successfully sold Girl Scout Cookies to pancake feed participants. Thin mints were a top-seller.
“It’s a lot warmer in here that is was when we were selling cookies outside at Walmart in Pratt earlier this week,” she said.
Lumbreras was assisted by her enthusiastic younger sister, Zoe, 3, who was very happy to talk about cookies, on sale for one more week.
Legion members provided drinks and kept the food flowing for those who ventured out before the predicted winter storm hit the area Saturday night. Money raised from the pancake and sausage feed will support Legion activities.
