Our 42nd annual Pancake Supper on the Thursday even of Pumpkin Festival was a rousing success. With over 300 takeout orders and about 700 people through the line, it was enough to keep the adult Rotarians, as well as the middle school and high school Interact Club  and the Boys Scouts busy for a couple of hours. The Pancake Supper is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We thank everyone who donated, worked, or ate the delicious pancakes and sausage, as well as those who sang and played.
