The Ephraim Men's Club hosted its annual pancake breakfast Aug. 3 to raise money for the scholarships it awards each year to Gibraltar High School graduates. Three of this year's scholarship recipients participated in the breakfast, greeting diners and serving pancakes in the original Ephraim Village Hall.

Scholarship recipients Clarissa Jauregui, Andrea Nelson and Robert Volpe helped serve breakfast to 517 people, the largest number of diners in the five decades the event has taken place. Proceeds from ticket sales, as well as donations from Men's Club members, businesses and Ephraim residents, go to the scholarship fund.

Jaureghi, Andrea Nelson and Ainsley Nelson won four-year scholarships from the club. Jaureghi, of Fish Creek, plans to attend St. Norbert College. Andrea Nelson, of Sister Bay, intends to study at the University of Minnesota. Ainsley Nelson, of Ephraim, plans to attend the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Volpe, Megan Swain and Josephine Shabbit won one-year scholarships with renewal contingent on academic performance. Volpe, of Ephraim, plans to attend the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. Swain, of Fish Creek, has enrolled at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. No school was listed for Shabbit, of Ephraim, in a club press release.

Since it began in 1912, the Ephraim Men's Club has raised more than $180,000 for scholarships for northern Door County students.
