Liberal’s Pancake Day Rep To Olney Has Sister Racing In Hometown
02/23/2014

Representing Liberal in Olney on Pancake Day, Mar. 4, will be Liberal native Megan Graff. Graff and her family currently live in England, but she also has a special connection to one of Liberal’s racers. She and Brooke Buchman are sisters.
“Being born and raised in Liberal, I experienced the International Pancake Race every year,” she said. “I was there to root on my sister, Brooke Buchman, as well as many others that I have come to know. Not only will I be cheering on my sister again this year, I will be doing it from across the ocean.”
Graff’s husband, Staff Sgt. Christopher Graff, is stationed at RAF Mildenhall, United Kingdom, where the family has made their home since 2012. Previously, they lived in Wichita, where SSgt. Graff was stationed at McConnell Air Force Base. They have three daughters, Kaley, age seven, Brianne, age six, and Addyson, 14 months.
The Graff girls will get some Pancake Day race training this year.
“My older two daughters have been asked to be honorary runners,” Graff said. “Not only will I be representing my hometown, so will my children. Unfortunately, my husband will not be in attendance as he is on deployment orders.”
Graff is ready to revisit the Pancake Day experience from the Olney perspective.
 “Pancake Day has always been special to me,” she said. “Whether it be running in a kids’ race, standing outside my mom’s work, Yoxall Law Firm, or standing at the finish line, it was one of those days that always brought excitement.”
She is also thrilled to be representing her hometown.
“To the people of Liberal, we wish you the best of luck and may the tradition carry on,” Graff said. “Please know that my children and I will proudly represent Liberal with pride and dignity.”
