Pancake Breakfast

Almonte 2019 HANDS Team:

Yet again early on a Saturday morning, the Hands team from Hillside Church in Almonte was up to their tricks again. This time it was the semi-annual Pancake Breakfast. The team had to be there at 7 am, however, a number of the organizers and helpers must have been there at 6 am setting up, in addition to the time spent precooking sausages the night before, picking up Christmas wreaths way out in Navan and sourcing food and Christmas items for the Christmas sale.

The sausauges and the pancakes were getting churned out right from 7 am to around noon. Hundreds of donated Christmas items were on display and sold to happy partakers. Over a 120 Christmas wreaths were sold as well.

The Church hall was a buzz with activity. Between people chowing down on good ole pancake and sausauge comfort food and kids cleaning up and washing dishes, it was a miracle that no one got injured or food poisoning.

So many people that are not even part of the team helped out and sacrificed their Saturday morning to help make this a success.

After the breakfast was done and the hall cleaned up, the team sat down and discussed what they saw. We were all so thankful for the people that came, gave up their time to serve selflessly. We were also warmed by the generosity of the community that came out. They not only paid for their meal, but they often gave extra just to show their support for our school building project in Belize.

Thanks everyone and we hope to see you at the next Pancake Breakfast in the spring of 2019.
