Some 35 gallons of pancake batter, 60 pounds of sausages, 7 FFA members, 2 agriculture advisors, and 8 hub club members helping.
Wednesday morning Feb. 23, New Ulm High School hosted the 48th annual Hub Club pancake breakfast. The breakfast was held from 6:30 to 9 a.m. and was open to the high school students, staff, and the community.
The pancake breakfast was put on by the New Ulm FFA Chapter and the farm city Hub Club. The goal of the Hub Club is to promote agriculture, promoting the New Ulm area as a trade center, educating the people on agriculture, and having relationships between farmers and city businesses.
“The reason we put this on is to promote agriculture throughout the community, as well as to connect with the community and the youth.” Denny Schmidt, Pete Neigebauer who are both former ag teachers, and Ruth Klossner who are members and past officers of the Hub Club said.
” The pancake breakfast is one of my favorite events because it’s great that the community is able to come to the high school and eat breakfast with the students. As well as getting a free filling breakfast!” Senior Luke Steffensmeier said.
