ST. JOHNSVILLE -- Planned for Sunday, May 4 at the H.C. Smith Benefit Club, the Margaret Reaney Memorial Library fundraiser Flapjacks and Fairytales, now in its ninth year, will feature a buffet pancake breakfast and basket raffle. The breakfast includes pancakes, sausage, eggs, home fries, biscuits, sausage gravy, locally produced maple syrup and beverages. Breakfast tickets are $7 for adults, $3 for children ages 6-11 and kids 5 and under are free. Breakfast is served from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., after which the basket winners are drawn.  

MRML Director Dawn Lamphere said “With over 50 baskets to choose from, there is certainly something to appeal to everyone. The baskets cover a variety of interests including babies and bicycles, hunting and home decor and food and fun to name a few. We also have a couple of indoor benches and a pair of outdoor lawn chairs. One of the most popular baskets every year is the $250 money tree donated by the library Friends." Raffle tickets are $1 a piece or 6 tickets for $5, 12 tickets for $10 or 25 tickets for $20.

Lamphere continued, "We are so grateful to everyone who donates a basket, volunteers their time in the kitchen and dining room and are absolutely thrilled by the number of people who come out in support of the event. Last year we saw about 600 hungry pancake eaters."

The H.C. Smith Benefit Club is located at 538 Crum Creek Road, St. Johnsville.  Leading up to the event, breakfast and raffle tickets may be purchased at the MRML, 19 Kingsbury Ave., and will then be available at the door on May 4.  Anyone desiring further information is invited to call the Reaney Library at (518) 568-7822.
