Event raised $7K for scholarships

On behalf of the Poulsbo Noon Lions as well as the North Kitsap area students receiving our scholarship, a hearty thank you to our community friends who attended our 41st annual Viking Fest Pancake Breakfast. We were able to provide seven scholarships as a result of everyone’s participation.

As you know, we held it in the third venue in three years — yet you found us anyway. Whether at the now non-existent armory (for 39 years) or City Hall parking garage, or our new “home” at NKHS, it was a pleasure to serve you your favorite pancake breakfast.

Although it’s an all-hands effort for Lions, we could not pull this off without support from our community friends. Thanks to Prowse and Company Real Estate for the use of their moving truck. Thanks to Reliable Storage for year-round use of their facility. Also, we would like to thank Agate Pass Transportation for providing shuttle service from downtown to our venue.

Displaying our event information on their sign boards were Liberty Bay Auto, James Lumber, Red Apple and EHL Insurance.  Andrew at Central Market assisted us with our many requests for additional supplies. And a very special thank you to Dan Blazer and Val Oas and their staffs from North Kitsap School District for all of their support at the school. We think it is the best site ever for our scholarship fundraiser.

And, of course, thanks to all of you pancakes- and eggs- and sausage-eaters, for your support. See you next year.
