Pancake Breakfast
March 23, 2019

Good morning Rotarians,

I just wanted to pass along some thoughts on Saturday’s pancake breakfast.

First of all, my sincere thanks to all who participated in the event…. we had one of the best turnouts by Club members I can remember. I’ll be more specific with my “thank you’s” on Wednesday but there were no areas where we were short on workers. Also, it’s the first event ever where we were assisted by our Interact, Rotaract, and Earlyact students!

An early report from Treasurer Bill Mealia indicates that this will be our most profitable breakfast in years! If you haven’t turned in your ticket or ad money yet, please do so.

Lastly, a huge thank you to Dr. Wansaw, and the students and staff of school 21! They are an absolute joy to work with and go out of their way to help us and make sure the event is a great success. Our/their Earlyact Club and the School’s National Honor Society did all the serving and bussing with great enthusiasm…and the choir was spectacular.

So again, my thanks to all of you who helped make this such a successful and fun event!

Ken Richuso
Pancake Breakfast Chairman
