Pancake Breakfast

Student Dan Connolly works to catch a pancake tossed by the Pancake Brothers at last year’s Pancake Breakfast

This year marks the 35th annual Silver Lake College Pancake Breakfast.  The breakfast began in 1975 under the direction of Sister Imelda Ann Dickrell, Silver Lake College Dietician at the time, at the request of three students, Kevin Kumbalek, John Kaufman and Steve Krupski who wanted to do a fundraiser.  Under Sister Imelda’s direction, she contacted vendors who donated all of the ingredients for the breakfast and organized students, faculty, and administration who worked together frying pancakes in the college kitchen and serving it to the patrons in the college cafeteria.

This year’s breakfast will be held on Sunday, November 15, from 8:00 AM to 12:00 noon at the Manitowoc college campus. The menu will include pancakes, sausage, apple sauce, coffee, juice and milk.  Tickets are $5.50 in advance and $5.95 at the door; children five and under are free. A bake sale featuring homemade kolaches, bread, cookies and other baked goods will be held in the Cafeteria. Visitors are welcome to attend Mass in the College Chapel at 10:00 AM. Pancakes will be prepared by the Pancake Brothers.  For advance tickets, please call 920-686-6188.
