The Pacific Eagles breakfast-crew members have been honing their skills for more than two decades at creating a big monthly feed the first Sunday of the month from October to April.
The breakfasts supplement the weekly bingo games that have become a powerhouse fundraising program for the Eagles, which support local Boy Scouts, the food pantry, school programs, library, and senior center.
The first Sunday breakfasts attract a steady stream of return customers to the Eagles big hall at 707 West Congress.
A veteran breakfast crew gathers in the kitchen to bake biscuits, grill pancakes, cook eggs and omelets to order, and make pot after pot of gravy, which are set up in buffet style or delivered as cooked to order eggs or omelets.
Feb. 4, the Eagles hosted the second from last Sunday breakfast for the 2017-18 season.
This year, due to Easter falling on April 1, there won’t be a breakfast in April.
“We don’t want to interfere with Easter,” said Bob McDermott, Eagles president and kitchen crew perennial.
March will be the last breakfast for this season.
