july 26 rotaryHonouring a tradition going back more than 30 years, the Rotary Club of Sarnia invites the community to celebrate the start of the Mackinac Boat Race in style – with a classic pancake breakfast served under the Bluewater Bridges.

Breakfast will be served under the Bluewater Bridges from 7 to 11 am on Saturday, July 22, 2017. Cost is $6 for adults and only $4 for children. A great bargain for a generous and tasty breakfast.

Go green and take the bike. The Rotary Club of Sarnia is partnering with Bluewater Trails to provide safe, supervised care of your bike while you enjoy your breakfast and watch the race. So if you’d like to save on travel costs and also keep fit, bike down to the Bluewater Bridges – we’ve got you covered.

Get ahead of the crowd. If you want to get ahead of the crowd, buy your ticket in advance, and then join the express lane for breakfast. Your pre-sale ticket gets you through the door more quickly, so you have more time to enjoy breakfast. Breakfast tickets are available for purchase at a wide variety of Sarnia locations, including Pathways Health Centre for Children, Manley’s and Haines Printing. Or you can call 519 542 3471 for tickets.

For years Sarnia and area residents have given an enthusiastic send off to the many sailing boats as they set off for Mackinac Island. The race is one of the longest fresh-water races in the world, and one of the oldest. The first was held in 1925. Sailors come from around North America to participate, and spectators are able to view in only a few hours some of the most majestic yachts that sail the Great Lakes.

It’s a great morning out for the whole family. The Rotary Club of Sarnia has been serving their signature Pancake Breakfast since 1982. The breakfast comes with pancakes and syrup, sausages and a beverage. Included with the breakfast this year will be Tim Horton’s coffee.


The Rotary Club of Sarnia uses all proceeds raised by the Pancake Breakfast to benefit local initiatives, including the Club’s recently completed $1 million dollar pledge to Bluewater Health, and our $600,000 pledge to Pathways Health Centre for Children.

The Rotary Club of Sarnia is supported through the activities of more than 55 members, who are local business and organization leaders representing a variety of vocations.

The Rotary Club of Sarnia meets every Tuesday. Contact us for details.
