The North Platte Community College volleyball team will begin accepting pre-orders for Sweet Saloon cinnamon rolls June 5.

The Sweet Saloon is a fundraiser for Knights Volleyball. It’s hosted every year at the McDaid Activities Center in conjunction with NEBRASKAland Days, the official state celebration.

The “melt-in-your-mouth” cinnamon rolls have been a staple of the NEBRASKAland Days celebration for years. Athletes, coaches and volunteers spend days preparing and baking the delightful treats, with the proceeds going toward scholarships for NPCC volleyball student-athletes.

“I would like to thank Hiland Dairy for their donation of products to make this fundraiser a success,” said Alexa McCall, NPCC Knights head volleyball coach. “We have such great community support every year, and I always enjoy getting the girls in the community to see just how supportive they are of our program.”

The actual event is June 11-13, but it’s recommended that orders be called in or placed online ahead of time to ensure rolls are available. Pre-orders can be made at https://commerce.cashnet.com/MPCCNPWVS and (308) 535-3696 until noon the day before rolls are needed.

The cost is $22 per dozen in advance or $25 at the door. Half dozen orders will also be accepted.  

The cinnamon rolls can be picked up at McDaid Elementary, the Do-It Center, Westfield Pharmacy, Sports Shoppe and the Welcome Center on NPCC’s South Campus.

A delivery option is also available with a $5 fee for those who order a minimum of two dozen rolls.
