Come out and join us on November 11, 2015 for the annual Collegiate FFA pancake breakfast. Members will begin cooking bright and early on that Wednesday morning to prepare a delicious breakfast for fellow students, staff, alumni and members of the Macomb community. Breakfast will begin being served in Knoblauch 239 at 7:00 am and will be served until 11:00 a.m. that morning. The breakfast will include pancakes, sausage, hash browns, biscuits and gravy, coffee and juice.
If you would like to get a ticket for the Collegiate FFA pancake breakfast you can do so by contacting a Collegiate FFA member or by calling the WIU Ag Office at (309) 298-1080. Tickets will be sold in advance for $5, but can also be purchased at the door that morning for $6.
If you are a WIU staff member, be sure to check out the new delivery ordering system that the CFFA will be using this year. If you have a meeting that morning or just can’t make it over to Knoblauch, you can pre-order your meal in advance and have it delivered to you on November 11th. The delivery route will be posted to the WIU School of Ag website at a later date. The route will tell you what time we will be in each building. If you are interested in having your meal delivered, please contact Christian Thurwanger at firstname.lastname@example.org. He will take your order in advance and then members will deliver your breakfast that morning. All pre-ordered meals must be in by November 6th. With this new delivery system, we are hoping to be able to serve more people on the WIU campus.
Members of the Collegiate FFA look forward to this event every year as it is a great opportunity to get to work together to serve fellow students, professors and members of the community. All funds earned from this breakfast go to help fund club activities. Some of these activities include putting on workshops for agriculture education majors, hosting contests for FFA members, and participating in the State PAS contest. Members have been working hard for the past month planning this event to ensure that everything runs smoothly.
The Collegiate FFA members look forward to seeing you all on November 11th for their annual pancake breakfast fundraiser. Be sure to get your ticket and get this event on your calendar. This is a breakfast you will not want to miss!
