Thank you to those of you who joined us for the Pancake Breakfast on Saturday. We raised $1,438 for the PTA! A big thank you to the Lake City Lions Club for hosting and in particular to Chuck Dickey who organized it and the folks who cooked and served all of the delicious food. Thanks too to our wonderful teachers and volunteers who helped out on the day and to Bronwen Houck and Maggie Cheung for displaying student work from the after school Coloring and Art Clubs, and Michael Holland and the Olympic Hills Choir for their wonderful music and singing!
Join us this weekend for pancakes, eggs, and turkey sausage (GF pancakes available!) as we celebrate the end of a great year and raise money for the next. We’ll enjoy a performance from the school choir as well as check out what the after school photography, art, and color clubs have been up to!
This event is sponsored entirely by the Lake City Lions Club and all proceeds go to Olympic Hills. Tickets are $6 for adults, $4 for kids, or $20 for a family of two adults and two or more kids. Tickets are available at the door.
Bring your friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, even your soccer team for great food and fun!
