Munster Lions Pancake Breakfast

Hello Scouts and Scouters.

On Sunday, March 1, 2020, the Lions Club of Munster will be hosting their annual pancake breakfast at the Munster High School cafeteria from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. The troop will again be both helping out with the Lions Club and hosting a bake sale near the exit doors during the breakfast. Given that this is a morning event, I’m asking for homemade muffins, breakfast breads and pastries for us to sell, for a goodwill offering, throughout the event. Would any Scouts or Scouters be so kind as to make and provide a homemade item? All items can be dropped off to me at 7a.m. the morning of the event, or I can collect them the day before at my house. (I will have a table and a cooler for you to put them in outside of my front door at 8626 Baring Ave, Munster, IN). You do not need to worry about slicing and/or packaging them individually. We will take care of that. We will be selling both individual muffins and slices of breakfast bread/pastries, as well as entire loaves or boxes of muffins. This event is a bit different in that folks aren’t really buying and eating desserts after their breakfast as much as they are taking items to go, so this allows us to package more items for folks to take home. 
Attached is a sign-up list for items as well as if any parents are interested in working the table with me throughout the event.

Many thanks, Lynn Eplawy (219-406-1422)
