Community celebrates Mother's Day with pancake breakfast
Story By Mary O'Connell

RHINELANDER - Many celebrated Mother's Day with their families Sunday. One local group in Rhinelander held its monthly pancake breakfast Sunday morning to help honor the special day.

The Knights of Columbus in Rhinelander host a pancake breakfast once a month at the Nativity of Our Lord church. Around 75 people come out for their breakfasts.

Money they raise goes to different charity events in the community. The knights wanted mothers to be able to celebrate by not having to cook.

"We get a lot of families on Mother's Day," said Rhinelander Knights of Columbus Grand Knight Tom Trochlil. "It's a good chance for families to bring their children here, and then the mothers of course don't have to cook for the kids. So the knights help out and cook for the families."

Everyone is welcome at the knight's pancake breakfasts. They had a special message for all mothers.

"Well we'd like to say 'Happy Mother's Day' to all the moms out there, that's for sure," said Trochlil. "It's a beautiful day, beautiful Mother's Day. And if you can join us for a pancake breakfast, we'd love to have you."

Due to renovations to the school's gym, the Rhinelander Knights of Columbus should be hosting its next pancake breakfast in the fall.
