Buy a Stack. Give Something Back.

by Peggy Payne

Those sweet Pancake Breakfasts are only part of the Scaly Mountain Women’s Club’s busy season of philanthropy.

The Scaly Mountain Women’s Club is working to provide scholarships to local students.

Their fundraisers are under way, with the first Pancake Breakfast of the season held in May when the ladies got out their big mixing bowls, spoons, and went to work to prepare pancakes, including their famous blueberry pancakes. The blueberries are picked by the members of the club, some will be used now and the others are frozen for next year. The breakfasts are held from 8:00 until 10:30 A.M.

The next breakfast will be June 22 at the Old Scaly School House on Buck Knob Road. Pancake Breakfasts are held May through September on the fourth Saturday of the month.

The Old Scaly School is happy once again to hear the sounds of children in the playground area and adults visiting and having another cup of coffee. This is helping our young scholars.

The ladies are also working on their major fundraiser, their annual Golf Invitational Dinner and Auction to be held at the Sky Valley Country Club on September 3. It is time to mark this on your calendar and practice your swing.

The club members are already looking through their recipes to find the best things chocolate for the Chocolate Fantasy to be held in October.

The main 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. This includes Highlands Emergency Council, the Fire Department and the Scaly Historical Society. For more information about the SMWC, please visit scalymountainwomensclub.org.
