The Board of Trade’s pancake breakfast was once again a huge success. We had approx 300 people enjoy pancakes and good company. Attendance is up substantially over last year.
And in more good news, we are generating less trash than every before. The only garbage generated were about 6 plastic bags from the sausages, and about 6 plastic bags from the apple sauce cups – about a handful of garbage in total. That’s amazing for 300 people!
