Pancake Breakfast 2019

2019 Nishuane Pancake Breakfast - Volunteers Needed

Join the 36-year old tradition at the Annual Nishuane Pancake Breakfast our largest school-wide Fall event! The event is a great way to reconnect or meet new friends in the Nishaune community. 

The breakfast will raise funds for Nishaune community events (boohoo breakfast, kindergarten ice cream social, family dance, Parents’ Night out, Health & Wellness Fair and 2nd grade moving up celebration), funding for Grow Lab and School Action Team partnership (SATp), provide yearly stipends to teachers/staff and field trip buses for each grade. 

Most of the volunteer opportunities are day of the breakfast (Saturday, October 19th 9am-12pm), but some are leading into the event. 

  • Weeks leading up the breakfast, help with gathering donations & activities: coffee, sausage, juice, gift cards from grocery stores, activities for families to participate in….
  • Friday, October 18th: 4-6pm set up- table chairs, signage..
  • Saturday, October 19th 7am-1pm: food prep, Captains, runners, donation pick up, chefs, greeters, spirit wear, placemat sales (SO MANY POSITIONS TO FILL!!!).

Shifts listed are 1.5-2 hours and overlap to allow volunteers to train the next shift.  If you need to adjust your time (start earlier/end later, etc.) please add a note when you sign up. Captains are people who will oversee a specific area on the day of the breakfast while communicating with the co-chairs to ensure a smooth event.  Sign up with a friend to be a captain!  

We will always gladly accept montary donations http://bit.ly/2019nishpancake but the breakfast wouldn’t work without VOLUNTEERS!!!!  We have many opportunities so please don’t hesitate to sign up today!!

Please feel free to contact us with questions or suggestions.
