Pancake Supper Success
Last (Shrove) Tuesday’s Pancake Supper was a success! It was our first larger
community event at our new location, bringing people together over a great
meal, with 45+ happy guests enjoying the occasion.

It was a fundraiser for the breakfast program at nearby Highland Park Junior
High where once a month we serve the students a solid breakfast (alternating
with other community groups). The exact amount raised will be announced later
this week, as donations are still trickling in.

A warm thank-you to all who helped make it happen and for your financial
contributions. If you missed it and would still like to make a contribution, you
can do so through an e-transfer to, or drop off
a cheque.
