ASHLEY CLEMENT and Brittney Clement serve up pancakes and sausage during the first Saxon Emerald Knights 4-H Club Pancake Feed Saturday at the Saxon Community Center.

SAXON, Wis. - Local residents dined on pancakes and sausages in support of the Saxon Emerald Knights 4-H Club, Sunday morning in Saxon.

According to club leader Kim Rowe, this is the first pancake feed the group has had and it went "very well."

Proceeds from the event benefit the club, which includes six members. The group participates in a variety of activities and events, including the Iron County Fair.

Each year, kids also travel to a store in Tomahawk, Wis ., which deals in making and decorating ceramics for an arts-and-crafts field trip.

New members are welcome, Rowe said, and the goal is to continue the feed in the future.

"This is our first time, and it has gone really, really well," Rowe said. "We're very thankful."
