Scouts want to go to camp. People want to eat pancakes. The convergence of those desires for 61 years has been the annual Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts Pancake Breakfast. 

Saturday from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m., local Scouts from Cub Scout Pack 304 and Boy Scout Troop 342 will make it 62 years. 

The event will take place at St. Paul Community Church, 18200 Dixie Highway in Homewood. Tickets are $6 at the door. Proceeds from the event help local Scouts attend summer camps and other activities.

“If you’ve never experienced it, it’s quite an event,” said Dan Riney, spokesman for Pack 304. “I don’t know how many people attend, but it’s got to be in the thousands.”

Riney said the line can be long, snaking through the church’s corridors, but it moves quickly.

“The entire production is a surprisingly well-oiled machine,” he said.

Scouts all have tasks to do during the event, from selling baked goods to refilling syrup bottles to clearing and re-setting tables. Parents of Scouts handle the pancake grilling duties, he said.
