When we all pitch in and work together, great things happen at Strathroy United Church.
In 16 short days, we planned, organized and served up a delicious pancake supper for 154 members of our Church and Community.
Thank you to all those who donated pies, desserts, maple syrup or sauce; cooked sausages or flipped pancakes, volunteered to set up, clean up or make sure our guests were well served. Special thanks to our youth for their help – Brooke, Haylee, Jordan, Kyle, Sydney and Cole.
We realized a profit of $1,161.88. Awesome job!
