It’s time for pancakes and sausages while supporting the youth of the Crescenta Valley – it’s time for the CV Pancake Breakfast.

“It brings the community together, that’s the most important thing that we always like to do,” said Harry Leon, president of the Crescenta Valley Town Council. “The breakfast brings the community together to help our kids and to let [the attendees] know the importance of the students in our community. We should all help our students.”

The breakfast, now in its 11th year, will be held at Crescenta Valley High School, 2900 Community Ave. in La Crescenta, on Saturday, Oct. 13 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the school quad. The breakfast will feature pancakes, sausages and all the traditional fixin’s, cooked and served by members of the CV Town Council and students from CVHS.

All of this is organized by the CVTC members and made possible through the sponsorship of Supervisor Kathryn Barger and other local organizations that donate resources or volunteer hours. The proceeds from the event go directly to helping youth programs in the Crescenta Valley. Students, through their clubs and sports boosters, sell tickets to the event for $5 each and, of that, half of the proceeds goes to their club fund and half goes into the Town Council’s Scholarship Fund. Scholarships are awarded to several students at the end of the school year.

“It’s always good to be aware and come and help the school and support our kids,” Leon said, “and to show how unified our community is that we care.”

Tickets are available through student clubs and through the Crescenta Valley Chamber of Commerce for $5 through Friday. Tickets at the door on Saturday will be $6.

At Fremont Elementary School on Saturday morning, the school is hosting its pancake breakfast as well.

“We will have pancake fun, our fall book faire, and our handprint wall,” said Principal Vickie Atikian.

The event is from 8 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and tickets are $5, which can be preordered or diners can pay at the door. All proceeds benefit the sixth grade class and help fund the students’ class camp trip, class T-shirts, promotion and more.

Fremont is located at 3320 Las Palmas Ave. in Glendale 91208.
