Legionaires turn out the breakfast while student volunteers from Naselle High School prepare to serve at the Legion Post #111 Annual Pancake Breakfast.

Last Saturday from eight in the morning until after 11 a.m. was an awesome way to enjoy a delicious breakfast consisting of pancakes with a side of ham or sausage and eggs fixed the way you like them, with coffee, orange juice or milk. All this was for the low price of $6 for adults and $4 for children under 12.

For over two decades, American Legion Deep River Post #111 has served the local community faithfully with the purpose of fulfilling the American Legion's 1919 mission statement that was founded on four pillars: Veterans Affairs and Rehabilitation, National Security, Americanism, and Children and Youth. Each of these pillars encompasses a variety of programs that benefit veterans, its service members, their families, the youth of America and ordinary citizens. The programs make a difference in hundreds of thousands of lives each year nationwide.

The volunteers from Naselle high School who served the food and cleaned the tables are fulfilling part of their graduation requirements by spending at least 40 hours of community service.

All the Post #111 members volunteer their services and pay their $38 a year for the privilege to be a part of a group of men and women who served their country faithfully and who continue to serve. As one legion member succinctly said, "My life has lots of ups and downs and I made it through all right, so I'm paying it forward."

These volunteers were in at 7 a.m. to prepare for the throng of folks that would consume hundreds of pounds of a tasty breakfast.
