Goshen Salvation Army's Pancake Day a fundraiser to flip over

GOSHEN — People turned out by the hundreds to participate in the Goshen Salvation Army’s annual Pancake Day fundraiser.

According to Salvation Army Maj. Allen Hanton, by 1 p.m. Friday 1,200 people had been through the doors.

“This is truly a community event,” Hanton said. “You can take a look at the crowd and see it’s a cross-section of the population of the community.”

Hanton said 15 service organizations from the Goshen area helped put on the meal.

In addition to the organizations there are many other volunteers who come in to turn sausage, make pancakes, clear tables, roll silverware, serve patrons and carry out the various other duties that make Pancake Day a success.

Pancakes and sausage were served for 13 hours Friday, from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. According to Hanton, last year around 2,200 people were served during Pancake Day.
