St. Clare Knights of Columbus Host Father's Day pancake fundraiser for The Soldiers Project/Sacramento

Nothing succeeds like success. At least that's what the good folks at St. Clare Catholic Church in Roseville figure as they prepare for the Second Annual Father's Day Pancake Breakfast, set for Sunday, June 15!

The event will benefit The Soldiers Project/Sacramento-Greater Placer, a non- profit organization which provides free, confidential psychological therapy to active-duty military and veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as their family members and loved ones.

All-you-eat golden brown pancakes and all the fixin's will be served from 8:30- 11:30 a.m. in the church parish hall, 1950 Junction Blvd. (corner of Junction and Baseline Road) in Roseville.

The hosts – and expert chefs – for the event is the congregation's Knights of Columbus Council 12887. Last year the food fest raised about $2,500 for The Soldiers Project in ticket sales and donations.

Besides pancakes, the June 15 menu will include deluxe pancakes, eggs, sausage, country potatoes, country biscuits and gravy, orange juice, fruit cocktail, coffee and tea. The pancake breakfast is bargain priced at just $8 for adults and $3 for children under 12 years of age. The meal will be free of charge to disabled veterans and active-duty military in uniform.

For more information about the event, how you can help out or to make a donation to The Soldiers Project/Sacramento and Greater Placer, contact SK Richard "Ricco" Ches at 916-869-4447 or email him at

The Soldiers Project/Sacramento, named in 2012 by the White House as one of the nation's top 20 military service organizations, is comprised of about 45 volunteer therapists who last year gave nearly 1,000 hours of free treatment to soldiers and their families. Its unlimited services go beyond those provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs medical system.

The Hit Men Perform At Harris Center June 8th

It's not the cast from Jersey Boys. Not a Jersey Boys tribute show. Not a Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons cover band. Members of this amazing supergroup of musicians, vocalists, arrangers and composers actually were the Four Seasons who sang with Frankie Valli. They were the Shondells who sang with Tommy James.

They are the authentic rock and rollers whose legacy includes hundreds of hit records from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

They now call themselves The Hit Men and are bringing their famous sounds and energy to Harris Center for the Arts.

Remember Gerry Polci and Lee Shapiro? They may not be household names now but back in the 70's, you bought all of their records. You heard them on the radio. Saw them on TV. Went to their concerts. So who are they?

They're the former stars of the hit- making factory known as Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons. These guys toured the world with Frankie. Recorded numerous hit albums with him. And sang the lead vocals on songs like "Oh What a Night" – the biggest Seasons hit of all time. When they met in 1973, they were two boys from New Jersey barely out of their teens, and the Four Seasons hadn't had a charted hit record in years. Along with Valli and songwriter/ producer Bob Gaudio, Gerry Polci and Lee Shapiro, they successfully transitioned the group's sound from '60s doo-wop to '70s pop with mega-hit songs like "Who Loves You" and "Oh What a Night," beloved hits that have been heard for generations and are woven into America's consciousness.

Spurred by the runaway success of Jersey Boys, the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical based on the Four Seasons' career, these former Seasons, who are now in their late 50s and early 60s, decided to re-unite -- along with an A-list group of musicians who wrote, recorded and performed with Carly Simon, Cat Stevens, Elton John, Jim Croce, Chicago, Luther Vandross, The Ramones, Carole King, and other mega-star acts of the era -- and give touring one more shot.

Their show is an amazing look back through rock and roll history, including fascinating back stories of what it was like being on the road and in the recording studios with Frankie, Tommy, Carly, Cat, Jim and Elton. And, of course, there are all those amazing hits…with The Hit Men performing great songs from the Four Seasons songbook (from "Rag Doll," "Dawn," and "Walk Like a Man," to "Can't Take My Eyes Of You," "Marianne," and "Sherry"), plus other mega hits that members of The Hit Men helped make famous back in the day such as Cat Stevens' "Peace Train," Jim Croce's "Leroy Brown," Carly Simon's "You're So Vain," and Tommy James' "Mony Mony."

When The Hit Men take the stage, it's easy to see why their music has transcended generations. The notes are sharp, the vocals spot-on, the energy is high, and these guys are having the time of their lives sharing their musical legacy with audiences everywhere!

The Hit Men. featuring former stars of Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons will perform Sunday, June 8, 2014 at 2 & 7 p.m. Tickets are priced at $25-$39; Premium $49. Tickets are available online at or from Harris Center Ticket Office at 916- 608-6888 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. Harris Center is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, facing East Bidwell Street.
