Cropsey meal longtime tradition

The annual Cropsey Methodist Church Pancake and Sausage Day isn’t just any pancake breakfast – it’s a homecoming for some.

More than 70 volunteers prepare pork the day before by packaging the meat and making patties for the meal.

“Part of those 70 people will travel from as far as Wyoming, Texas and Massachusetts to help,” explained volunteer Jeff Abbey.

Since some of those helping were raised in the Cropsey area and have roots there, it kind of serves as a homecoming.

“This is part of a 70-year plus tradition in Cropsey,” notes Abbey. “Last year, we sold pork from 22 hogs and we typically serve 400 to 500 people.”

A longtime Brucker family recipe is supposedly used for the ground sausage. The unique flavor offering always seems to be popular among attendees.

The Cropsey Methodist Pancake and Sausage Day is this Saturday (March 2) from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. with proceeds going to charities. Adults 13 and over are $8, children 6-12 are $4 and those five and under eat for free. The event will be wheelchair accessible with the front door entrance on the west side of the church.

A country store will feature a bake sale, extra meat and miscellaneous items like handmade crafts.
