Ponderosa 4-H Horse Club to Host 68th Annual 4th of July Pancake Breakfast

On July 4th, from 7 to 11 a.m., the Leavenworth Ponderosa 4-H Horse Club, in conjunction with the Leavenworth Lions Club, will host the 68th annual 4th of July Chuckwagon Pancake Breakfast.  A strong local tradition that brings together the community for the holiday, hundreds gather at Lions Club Park in Leavenworth to start the day off by supporting local youth and their 4-H horse projects. Club members and families cook, serve, and circulate, sharing their love of all things horse and 4-H.  From their hard work, funds raised support club members participating in intensive equestrian clinics, local 4-H horse shows, and then showcasing their projects at both the NCW and Chelan County fairs. Locally renowned for their giant plate-sized flapjacks, breakfast tickets are $10 for adults, $6 for youth 12 and under. Breakfast includes all-you-can-eat pancakes, eggs, sausage, coffee, and orange juice.  The Ponderosa 4-H Horse Club has been an integral part of the Leavenworth community for nearly 100 years and is one of the oldest equestrian 4-H clubs in Washington state. They are generously supported by many organizations and individuals in the community that share their time, talents, resources, and finances to support youth development through their love of horses.  The breakfast is held in conjunction with and kindly supported by the Leavenworth Lions Club, which serves their community through sight, hearing and diabetes health education & services, local food banks, college scholarships, scouts, youth sports, Special Olympics, and many other community projects.
