Pleasanton: Pancakes then Pack Out for troops


Ana Shadrick (shown), the mother of a U.S. Marine veteran and a member of the Pleasanton Military Families, invites the community to last year's annual Pancake Breakfast and Troop Pack Out. This year's event takes place this Saturday, a day that begins with a free breakfast -- freshly made pancakes, sausage, donuts, bagels, fruit and yogurt -- from 7:30-11 a.m. at Delucchi Park on First Street.

The event will include military vehicles, active military members, kids activities and music to celebrate the troops, and Pleasanton Military Families will be accepting donations for its care package program. Then, at noon, everyone is invited to participate in the Troop Pack Out at the Veterans Memorial Building, 301 Main St.

No experience is needed, and many hands are needed to pack the boxes, noted the organizers. On Friday, from 3:30-5:30, there is a pre-pack and donations are gratefully accepted; a list of needed items is at
