Lights stay on, thanks to July 4 pancake eaters
CARNATION Many revelers at Carnation's Fourth of July festivities will begin the day feeding on pancakes at Tolt Congregational United Church of Christ. In doing so, they will be contributing to the church's "Good Neighbor Fund," one of the church's many outreach ministries.
The Good Neighbor Fund provides help to Snoqualmie Valley residents caught in short-term crises on a year-round basis. One such common crisis is facing a power shut-off. Working with other community agencies and churches, residents can rely on Tolt's Good Neighbor Fund to help them keep their lights on.
The pancake breakfast, the major fund-raiser for the fund, is served from 8 to 11 a.m. in the church's social hall. The church is located at 4851 Tolt Avenue, at the north end of downtown Carnation.
Tickets for the breakfast may be purchased at the door, according to Sally Gregg, one of the church's Pancake Committee Co-chairs. The cost includes all the pancakes you can eat, served with ham, scrambled eggs, syrup and strawberry jam, orange juice, milk, and coffee. Tickets are $6 for 13 and over, $5 for seniors, and $4 for children. Additional donations for the fund are also accepted and, according to Pastor Jeff Spencer, are tax deductible.
Valley residents access the Good Neighbor Fund by calling the church for an appointment.
