President John E. Klein Volunteers During Lynchburg Exchange Club's Annual Pancake Jamboree

Randolph College President John E. Klein joined dozens of other city leaders and celebrities Friday, November 4 to “flip pancakes” for the Lynchburg Exchange Club’s Annual Pancake Jamboree.

The event, which is in its 52nd year, benefits programs of the Lynchburg Exchange Club. In recent years, proceeds from the event have gone to organizations like the MDA, Crisis Line of Central Virginia, Boys and Girls State, For Kids’ Sake Safety Day, CASA of Central Virginia, the Miller Home, Patrick Henry Boys Home, American Red Cross, Lynchburg Life Saving Crew, and the Lynchburg Police Foundation.

Klein volunteered during the busy lunchtime rush and manned one of the busy griddles with John Randolph “Randy” Nelson, a member of Lynchburg City Council. The $8 tickets included all-you-can-eat pancakes, sausage, coffee, and other beverages, and the event ran throughout the day.
