Jackson Pancake Day 1950s

Posted Wednesday, March 17, 2010, at 7:30 AM

We believe this photo by G.D. Fronabarger shows the Jackson Rotary Club holding its annual Pancake Day in Jackson.

Jim Rapp saw the picture and responds:

This location was the old St. Paul Lutheran School in Jackson, and this is where the Jackson Pancake Day was held. This was the second floor of the building. This building has since been torn down and the new St. Paul Lutheran School is located on this property at the corner of Russell St. and West Jefferson.

When the building was demolished, pancake day was moved to the New McKendree Methodist Church basement - Main St. and Adams.

Time frame, as I do recognize some of the individuals, is from 1957 - 1959.

I remember at the pancake days that you could eat as many as you could and leave there so "stuffed."

  • I noticed that Mr. Rapp indicated that he might recall the names of some of the individuals in the photo - how about posting those here, or do you keep an archive of these photo descriptions, Fred? Thanks.
