The Rotary Club looks forward to the return of the in-person pancake breakfast

Posted: Nov 30, 2021 8:00 AM

The Newtown Rotary Club Pancake Breakfast will be back for an in-person reunion this year.

Organizers recently announced that the club’s 61st anniversary event is scheduled for Saturday, December 4, from 8 a.m. to noon. Long-standing tradition will return to the Alexandria Room at Edmond Town Hall at 45 Main Street.

Much celebrated, the event brings Newtown families together to share friendship and news, while eating some of the best homemade pancakes the city has to offer.

Guests will once again be able to enjoy the entertainment with dance performances planned by students of the Newtown Center of Classical Ballet and the Vocal Dance School and Lathrop, and a visit from Santa Claus.

It’s not just the camaraderie and the food that makes the event special, according to the local Rotary club. Every dollar raised is used to meet the needs of this community. Through fundraisers like this, the Newtown Rotary Club supports the Newtown Scholarship Association, Newtown Volunteer Ambulance, CH Booth Library, Newtown Youth & Family Services, Dorothy Day Hospitality House, The Women’s Shelter of Danbury, Regional Hospice of Western Connecticut and many more.

As part of the local club’s international service, members also work to raise funds to help fund life-saving heart operations for children with congenital heart disease in developing countries through the Rotary Gift of Life International and as part of its own “Newtown Gift of Life Challenge”. Funds raised by the club have saved the lives of more than 200 children.

Tickets for the all-you-can-eat event cost $ 10 for adults and $ 5 for children. The menu includes homemade pancakes, sausages from Butcher’s Best, award-winning maple syrup from Maple Craft Foods and freshly roasted coffee from BD Provisions, as well as milk, juice and hot chocolate.

Visit for additional information and tickets in advance. Tickets will also be sold at the door.
