Roxbury church to serve pancakes

The Roxbury Congregational Church will hold a pancake breakfast Dec. 14 from 8 to 10 a.m.

Proceeds from the breakfast at the 24 Church St. church will support the church's mission next to July to work with Simply Smiles on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation in South Dakota.

Members of the church's Men's Fellowship and those supporting the trip will prepare and serve the breakfast.

"We are inviting the children of our community to come together and to help children on the reservation who do not have the benefits that we enjoy here, adequate shelter, healthy food and hope for their future," said Men's Fellowship leader Charlie Meade.

Members of the Roxbury community who may be interested in joining on this trip are encouraged to speak with the Rev. David Peters.
