Boy Scouts serve pancake breakfast
Boy Scout Troop 189 is hosting the Mukilteo Lighthouse Festival Pancake Breakfast for the second year.
The annual breakfast will be held from 8 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Pointe of Grace Lutheran Church at 5425 Harbour Pointe Blvd. in Mukilteo. There will also be a raffle, live music and more.
About 20 scouts will serve a traditional pancake breakfast with sausage links, fresh orange juice and coffee.
“We welcome the whole community to stop in for breakfast prior to the Lighthouse Festival Parade,” said Caroline Scull, breakfast committee chair. “We are very excited to be back.”
Troop 189 took over the pancake breakfast for the Mukilteo Lions Club last year, after helping the club serve pancakes for more than 12 years. The Lions Club decided to trade their pancake spatulas for hot dog buns – see its Weenie Wagon at Lighthouse Park during the festival Sept. 6-8.
During breakfast, there will be musical performances by pianist Stefanie Wachter (8:30 a.m.), and Kamiak High School’s choral groups the Starry Knights (9 a.m.) and Men’s Barbershop (9:30 a.m.).
In addition, scouts will give demonstrations and simple tips on emergency preparedness. Informational handouts will be available.
There will also be a raffle of a selection of gift baskets and gift cards. Raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5.
Proceeds from the breakfast help fund Troop 189 activities, including summer camp, canoeing trips and a national jamboree.
“We want to thank the community who came out last year to make our first event so successful,” Scull said.
Tickets are available through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or from any of the scouts. Advanced tickets are $6 or $25 for a family of five. Tickets are $7 at the door.
