LHU Clearfield students help with annual pancake dinner

Pancake Dinner

On November 6, students from the Lock Haven University Clearfield Campus donated their time to help the Clearfield Rotary Club with their annual election day pancake dinner at the Trinity United Methodist Church in Clearfield.  

Participants included students from Dr. Michael McSkimming’s introduction to sociology class and members of the Clearfield Criminal Justice Club. In addition to arranging tables and place settings, mixing pancake batter, cooking sausage, serving patrons and cleaning tables, students had the opportunity to work with other students and Rotarians, create important networks and assist an organization who gives so much to the community at large.  

This year marked the eighth year students from the Clearfield Campus have participated in this event. According to McSkimming, it was a banner year on several levels.

“It amazes me that each year more and more students are willing to give up their own personal time to help make and serve pancakes,” McSkimming said. “This year we had 16 students come by the night before to set it all up and 26 to make the function run as smoothly as possible. That was not a small feat, given the high numbers of people who came out to eat this year. Not only that, there were a number of volunteers who came by to help out who are no longer students at the university. I guess they liked the pancakes!”

Plans already are being made to help out this important cause in 2019.
