Patriots Day is coming… so are the Pancakes

posted Apr 7, 2017, 5:53 PM by Troop Editor

Each year on the morning of Patriots’ Day we host our legendary Pancake Breakfast.  The Troop’s sole fundraiser for the year, the proceeds ensure that all kids can fully participate in Scouts regardless of their ability to pay.

Troop 160 invites everyone to join us for a hearty breakfast at hard-to-beat prices: $7 per adult and $5 per child (under the age of 12).  We open immediately after the Battle of Lexington Reenactment on Monday, April 17, 2017 at 5:30am, in Keilty Hall in the basement of St. Brigid Church (newly renovated and now handicapped accessible).  We keep serving until 10:00am, so you don't necessarily have to be up before dawn to enjoy a great breakfast infused with the spirit of community for which Lexington is famous.

We expect to see you there,
