Buckeye Citizens for Quality Education to host pancake breakfast

ASHTABULA TOWNSHIP — Volunteers and entertainers are lining up to make the Buckeye Citizens for Quality Education’s first pancake breakfast a success.

Buckeye Local Superin-tendent Joseph Spiccia said the event has been scheduled for the morning of March 23 in the Edgewood High School cafeteria.

“The goal is to create a sense of community,” Spiccia told the board during its meeting Tuesday. “To bring the community together to support the district and experience what it has to offer.”

The four-hour event will feature flannel cakes and other breakfast stables for $5 per dinner. A Chinese auction and raffle also are planned.

There will be entertainment throughout the morning. Spiccia said the high school’s jazz band, a choir from Kingsville and the Tiny Twirlers are already on the entertainment schedule.

“We look at this as a coming together of the entire community,” Spiccia said.

Interest in the concept is strong. Spiccia said that a planning meeting drew about three dozen volunteers and a Girl Scout troop has expressed interest in helping. Board members and administration will be working the event, as well as they reach out to the community.

Buckeye Citizens for Quality Education is a group that has existed primarily to raise money for levy campaigns. Spiccia said he wants to expand the volunteer group’s work to creating better communication between the school district and its residents.
