Tired of getting up early and cooking the Saturday morning pancake breakfast for the whole family? Tired of trying to satisfy every culinary whim in your household – ‘I want blueberry, I want strawberry, I don’t want anything’?
Well, worry no longer.
Let the Women of Nashotah House (WoNH) serve your family. Join us for breakfast Saturday, February 18th, from 8:00 – 11:00 am in the James Lloyd Breck Refectory. Enjoy cooked-to-order pancakes and all the trimmings in the relaxed and serene atmosphere of our historic campus on the shores of Upper Nashotah Lake. Don’t forget to sample Nashotah’s own delicious house-made maple syrup, sure to delight the senses. And whatever you do, don’t miss the bake sale, Nashotah’s abundant array of traditional homemade treats, sweets and savouries.
‘In this day and age, it is increasingly rare for families to enjoy a peaceful, lingering and plentiful breakfast together’, comments The Rt. Rev. Edward L. Salmon, Jr., Dean and President of Nashotah House, ‘and this traditional pancake breakfast is the perfect opportunity for families to be intentionally together, take in our historic surroundings and to be spiritually replenished’.
For the history buff of the family, docent-guided tours of Nashotah House – Wisconsin’s oldest institution of higher learning and piety – will be available. Visitors will explore the historic heart of campus, the Chapel of St. Mary the Virgin, turn the pages of rare Medieval Manuscripts in the Frances Donaldson Library and be given a chance to ring Michael, our one ton bell that has continually beckoned our community to prayer since 1871. Tours are free, last approximately thirty minutes and will depart on the half hour from the Refectory (8:30, 9:30, 10:30).
Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance: $9 for adults and $6 for children (3 years and under eat free). More information may be found by visiting our website www.nashotah.edu. All of the proceeds go to benefit the Women of Nashotah House’s Spring Lenten Retreat.
