FUMC partners to host strawberry pancake, sausage breakfast

BUCKHANNON — The First United Methodist Church (FUMC) partnered with The Upshur County Parish House (UCPH) and the Buckhannon-Upshur Christmas Store Christmas Store.

Pam and Barry Moll are co-chairs of the Strawberry pancake and sausage breakfast. The co-chairs explained that this was the first breakfast the church has hosted since COVID-19 began. Food was purchased in bulk, but donations were accepted for the breakfast. The adult fee to eat was $10 and children under 10-years of age ate for $6.

Strawberry jam was also available for purchase this year. The women of FUMC made 100 pints of jam and 40 half pints. The proceeds from the pancake breakfast sales went to benefit the UCPH, Youth and Mission Fund and the Buckhannon-Upshur Christmas Store. The proceeds for the Youth and Mission Fund are used to send kids on trips and other youth related activities, in addition to assisting the Christmas Store to provide new clothing and toys at low costs for local families.

“We believe everyone deserves dignity but may not have the means for it. However, these organizations really help with making that a reality for our community,” Barry Moll expressed. “Everybody is a ‘neighbor.”

Many locals and visitors came out to support the event in co-celebration with the 80th Annual West Virginia Strawberry Festival. Thanks were expressed for everyone who took time to come and support a local cause.
