The Meadows of Dan Ruritan Club and Fire Department will host the 55th annual Pancake Days fundraiser on Sunday, October 16, and Sunday, October 23, from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. at the Meadows of Dan Community Building (2858 Jeb Stuart Highway).
Each year, more than 4,000 people attend the all-you-can-eat event supporting the local community. The pancake meal features a selection of buttermilk pancakes, buckwheat pancakes, sausage, gravy, and all the fixings.
“Pancake Days is our largest event of the year and returns for the first time since we were unable to have the event in 2020,” said Emily Handy, president of Meadows of Dan Ruritan Club. “Pancake Days is a generational event that brings everyone together at the heart of our community, and we cannot wait to welcome everyone back this year.”
Proceeds from Pancake Days benefit various local community causes and organizations including the volunteer fire department, rescue squad, schools, college scholarships, food drives, and other needs in Patrick County.
“Families from miles around come together to host Pancake Days,” said Debra Shelor, Ruritan treasurer. “The impact on our community is significant by supporting youth education, ensuring our local safety squad can care for area residents, and that our community building remains a place for all area events.”
Prices at the door are $12 for adults, and $6 for children ages twelve and under. Cash and credit cards will be accepted. To-go orders are available and Neese’s freshly ground sausage, seasoned just right, will be available for sale, too. Commemorative T-shirts will be available for purchase.
Tax-deductible donations are being accepted online for those who cannot attend. Visit the RuritanMOD.square.site for more information or to donate today.
Bring the family for a not-to-be-missed event and become part of the tradition.
