A pancake breakfast will be held in the basement of St. James Episcopal Church, between Church Street and South Court Street, in Lewisburg as an early event Saturday, Apr. 11, beginning at 8 a.m. The event coincides with the Lewisburg Chocolate Festival later that day.
In addition to the pancakes and syrup, sausage, milk, coffee and orange juice, the breakfast will also feature chocolate milk and chocolate syrup with whipped cream for the pancakes. And the cost is only $5 per plate with the members in the Greenbrier East High School Spartan Marching Band benefiting from the proceeds.
Sugar-free syrup will also be available.
“The students are looking forward to serving the breakfast,” noted Greenbrier East Music Booster president Kim Williams, noting the students will have public performances later that day in the Greenbrier Valley, a day which also includes the Marshall University football scrimmage at The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs.
“Booster members are also discussing other ‘surprise’ menu items which might be offered during the three-hour event,” she added.
Parking for the pancake breakfast which will be served between 8-11 a.m. will be available on both Church and South Court Streets.
The Spartan band members are currently preparing for the state-required adjudication in the Beckley portion of the West Virginia High School Bands Festivals in late April as well as the annual Spring concert in May at Greenbrier East High School.
In addition, plans are already underway for the 2015-16 marching band season which begins with a six-day band camp this summer at Greenbrier County Youth Camp at Anthony and features five-a-day practices as well as traditional camp activities.
