FLAP THOSE JACKS Gold Bar VFW has panckake breakfast Sat. March 20, 2015
Flapjacks will be flapped and stacked high at Gold Bar VFW pancake breakfast.
(GOLD BAR, WA.) -- The Gold Bar VFW will hold a pancake breakfast this Saturday, March 21, at the VFW Hall on 3rd Street in Gold Bar.
It will be from 7AM TO 10AM. Suggested donation is $5.00 per person.
It should be noted on the eve of the breakfast that the name "flapjacks," which many people use to mean pancakes originated in the 1600s in England.
The "flap" part of flapjack dates back to the 1300s when "flap" was used in place of "to flip."
It has never been quite clear as to what the "jack" in flapjack means, but it is often speculated it refers to the "small size" of a flapjack as "jack" was used to refer to something that was smaller than normal.
