WAYNESBORO, Pa. — Sizable crowds are expected Saturday at Waynesboro Area Senior High School for the annual pancake breakfast and business expo.

The Waynesboro Lions Club will open the doors for its breakfast fundraiser at 7 a.m. Fifty volunteers will prepare and serve pancakes and other breakfast food.

“It benefits the eyesight project where we give free eye exams and glasses for needy people,” said Jim Bowersox, one of the breakfast organizers.

Tickets are $6 for adults and $3 for children ages 4 to 12.

The Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce will host its 16th annual business expo starting at 7:30 a.m. The event is co-sponsored by The Record Herald.


Forty-five vendors have signed up to share information about financial services, senior care, home improvement, health and fitness, and service groups. They will have booths in the hallway and cafeteria until noon.

Also on display will be the artifacts being incorporated into a Sept. 11, 2001, memorial at Red Run Park in Washington Township, Pa. Those artifacts come from ground zero in New York City, the Flight 93 crash site in Shanksville, Pa., and the Pentagon in Washington, D.C.

“Every year, we try to have a special attraction or special guest. We have arranged to have the artifacts brought into the school to be on display,” said Carlene Willhide, executive director of the Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce.

In past years, the expo and breakfast have drawn about 1,000 people, Willhide said.

“It’s a great opportunity for people to come out, eat a hot breakfast and see the vendors,” she said. “This is an event we always look forward to doing because it showcases so many things.”

A Kindle Fire tablet will be given away, Willhide said.
