The 57th Annual Sunset Beach Pancake Breakfast was a success. More than 200 neighbors got to meet in person at last Saturday’s event, which raised $1,000 to assist in paying utilities, property tax and insurance, according to Kevin Paulson, Sunset Beach Community Association president.
“I want to thank all our generous sponsors, including Harry’s Grill, The Perricone Family, Ohana Kitchen, The Sunset Beach Woman’s Club and Las Damas,” Paulson said. “Because of a generous donation from the Tony Nobles Family we were able to have the exterior of the Nobles Community Center painted. The Nobles paid for the labor and the community association paid for the supplies.”
“It’s always fun to see old friends and meet new neighbors at this event,” said Eric Schlange, a 30-year annual breakfast volunteer.”I would encourage all who are interested to come to a Community Association meeting and get involved.”
Lorna Roberts said she looks forward to the event and the joyful community camaraderie. “That’s what makes Sunset Beach such a special place.”
Dan Kalmick, a former Sunset Beach volunteer firefighter and current Huntington Beach City Councilman, said, “Everything was great, especially the Orange Juice.”
Huntington Beach City Historian Jerry Person attended to document this historic event: “I’m thrilled to see so many locals come together to support the community and encourage other areas of the city to to the same.”
The next Sunset Beach event is on Aug. 6–The Tin Can Beachcomber Movie Night. For more information, visit http://www.sunsetbeachca.org .
