Pilot Knob celebrates Father’s Day with lavish breakfast spread

The school drew a crowd of 250 at their delicious Father’s Day breakfast on Sunday.

Father’s Day was a feast for all those who attended Pilot Knob’s 12th annual pancake breakfast on Sunday, June 18.

With a huge spread of pancakes and French toast, sausage and ham, scrambled eggs, fruit salad and the usual beverages, Stettler and area community members had lined Hwy. 601 on either side with vehicles.

“We do this for the community and to make sure that the school is standing and maintained and looked after,” said Donna Fox, treasurer of the Pilot Knob School committee that has been organizing this breakfast for the past 11 years. “The breakfast is by donation and we have a very generous and giving community that has helped us in pulling the event off.”

Fox said that her association goes way back, when her father’s grandparents settled in the Pilot Knob area.

“I would say in the 1900s, and there have been three generations of my family and there are others who have similar stories, so a few of us are really interested in keeping the school standing,” Fox added. “And this is a really good activity for the community to get together and catch up. We have drawn around 250 people today.”

President David Fox stated that a lot of the local businesses chip in to make this possible.

“We have a lot of local businesses in our community who have been so amazing,” David said. “We have been well supported by Bagshaw Electric, Bill’s Farm Supply, Heartland Glass, Gord’s Trucking, besides individuals like Pat Lattery and Gen and Dave Seibiel and all our Pilot Knob volunteers.”
