    The Kewanee National Guard will hold its annual pancake and sausage breakfast from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday at the Armory. Shown setting up the mess hall are, from left, SFC Scott Wagner and STM Bob Haverback of 2nd Squadron, 106th Cavalry, Illinois National Guard; and SFC (Ret.) Jerry Newman. Tickets are $5 for adults and $2.50 for children under 10. Proceeds will go to support youth activities, such as the ABCD program, and other community programs. The local Family Support Group will also hold a bake sale in conjunction with the breakfast.

    Also Young Marines serve pancakes to rebuild old Post 1508


    WILDOMAR ---- Young Marines Staff Sgt. Raul Mendez pulled forks and knives from syrupy dishes as his subordinates carried out plates of pancakes, eggs and sausage to the crowd.

    Around him, 20 or so people sat at tables waiting for their $5 breakfast Saturday morning in the mess hall at the VFW Post 1508. More Young Marines served and cleaned as members of the Wildomar Veterans of Foreign Wars Men's Auxiliary flipped flapjacks and cooking bacon.

    The two organizations work quickly and efficiently to serve as many hungry bellies possible. What they earned Saturday will fund programs for Young Marines and go toward rebuilding of the VFW building, the front of which is nothing more than a wooden frame. The post was consumed by a fire in early March, destroying the front bar.

    Saturday's pancake breakfast served as yet another instance of military helping one another out, said Bill McDonald, formerly of the Army and now a general contractor. The VFW has been good to the Young Marines, helping fund programs such as silent drill and training camps, and in return the Young Marines are dishing out breakfast to raise money for the building. Also, McDonald is rebuilding the Post with the help of 20 active Marines from Camp Pendleton who demolished the portions charred by fire. The fire caused more than $50,000 in damages.
