CHESTERTOWN - The teachers of North Warren launched a community social gathering last year, and it was such a success, organizers said, it's set to become a local tradition.
The second annual Community Pancake Breakfast sponsored by the North Warren Teachers Association will be held Saturday, April 25.
More than 175 people were served at the event last year, teacher Josh Gifford said.
The event was a huge success and fun was had by all," he said. "All are invited to participate, and enjoy the fellowship of community."
Last year, the event passed expectations, North Warren sixth grade teacher Lori Korniak said.
"We were very surprised at the turnout," she said. "Many teachers brought their spouses and children, so the students could meet their teachers' families, and the students' family members had the opportunity to meet their kids' teachers."
Children helped set up the tables, and about two dozen teachers cooked the food and served it to the public.
This year's event, to be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., includes a collection of non-perishable food to be given to the local food pantry.
Breakfast attendees are asked to bring a donation of canned, bottled or boxed foods, Korniak said.
"This is a social, fun event that celebrates the arrival of Spring," she said.
