Chamber of Commerce 40th Pancake Breakfast

by Nick Lombardi, intern WSU ’18

The Greater Westfield Chamber of Commerce has announced that it will be holding their fortieth anniversary Pancake Breakfast celebration this Thursday from 7:00 – 11:00 a.m.

The pancake breakfast has been a tradition in the city, bringing the community together for generations. Festivities will include music, face painting, bingo, a live broadcast from WSKB 89.5 FM and more.

The event will be held at South Middle School, located on 30 W Silver St. in Westfield.

For many years the event was held on Park Square Green but was forced to move after renovations to the green started several years ago. The change in venue has been viewed as an improvement by the staff and has remained at the school.

One key benefit of this location is, if it rains the event can be moved indoors to the school’s cafeteria.

Additionally, the school’s parking lot has made it easy for attendance to grow, and in doing so strengthening the community by bringing members of businesses, families, and city government together. 

Thanks to the partnerships the Chamber has made, over 300 children will be fed for free. With 100 kids from the YMCA, 50 from the Boys & Girls Club, and the combined effort of 3 local summer camps. It should be an exciting day for everyone, with over 1,200 guests expected to attend.

Along with the breakfast, there will also be 25 vendor tables at the event.
