Pancakes at the pavilion: Saint Martin's students invite public to a
Saturday breakfast benefit for hurricane victims
Oct. 25, 2005
Lacey – What do pancakes have in common with
hurricanes? If you say that many homes, schools, libraries and
businesses were flattened like pancakes by hurricanes lately, you’d
right, of course. The rest of the answer happens Saturday at Saint
Martin’s University when a big pancake breakfast will raise money to
help victims of the two recent devastating hurricanes, Katrina and Rita.
The all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast buffet is a
service project of the 20-member Freshman Seminar class led by Saint
Martin’s Vice President for Academic Affairs Barbara Gayle, Ph.D.
Students will be serving breakfast from 9 a.m. to noon at Saint Martin’s
Pavilion, 5300 Pacific Ave., with all proceeds earmarked for hurricane
Each year, students in each of the university’s
Freshman Seminar classes take on a community service project in pursuit
of one of Saint Martin’s guiding principles, that of living exceptional
lives dedicated to serving others. Gayle’s class decided to help
hurricane victims and planned the entire event. Besides the buffet,
they’ll have games and raffles to get the morning off to a great start.
Please join the students for breakfast and lend your
support to the hurricane relief effort. Tickets are $5 and can be
purchased at the door.
