A Blueberry Blast
by Peggy Payne
The Scaly Mountain Women’s Club helps young people in the community continue their educations.
This is why we pick, wash, and freeze the blueberries included in our famous pancakes. Husbands help and can be seen grilling sausage, flipping pancakes, and making the coffee for our Pancake Breakfasts on the fourth Saturday from May through September at the Old Scaly School House on Buck Knob Road. Hours are 8:00 A.M. until 10:30 A.M. and the price is $6 dollars for 13 and above and $4 for children five and up.
The breakfasts are a part of our fundraisers, which include an Annual Golf Tournament and The Chocolate Fantasy held in October.
This is how we are able to help these students. At the present we have 15 students on scholarships.
The major goal of the SMWC is financial help to ensure that our students may advance their education, but we also support local organizations that serve our community.
