Pancakes and Lumberjacks

Jake DeLaurier, staff writer

The smell of pancakes was in the air inside the main building at Piedmont Virginia Community College (PVCC) on April 13, 2017. This was the location of Pancake Panorama, an event held by the Lumberjack Club.

At the event, members of the Lumberjack Club sold pancakes near the Bolick Student Center.

Proceeds from the event went to the International Rescue Committee (IRC). IRC helps refugees by providing assistance on finding a better place to live and helping them assimilate in the United States.

Vice President of the Lumberjack Club Joseph Roberts was  at the event. “It was technically the whole idea of the club,” said Roberts.

Students and faculty members were able to buy pancakes and could add toppings such as syrup. At around 2 p.m., the Lumberjack club had raised an approximately $50. Roberts also pointed out that people who missed out on Pancake Panorama could still donate to IRC by visiting their website.

Roberts then took some time to talk about the Lumberjack Club.“We see our weekly meeting as a time of fellowship,” said  Roberts.

Volunteering has always been part of the Lumberjack Club. “We kind of had this goal of volunteering the most out of any club,” said club member Ilia Kowalzik.

The Lumberjack Club has more volunteering events planned for the future. One of these will be Flannel Fun Run on July 8. It will be a 5k run to help support Caring for Creatures.

“There are bright things in the Lumberjack’s future,” said Roberts.
