That’s a lot of pancakes

Pancake Day chairwoman Barb Tanski told us the Lions Club served about 300 more people at last week’s pancake fundraiser than last year’s, so we knew the bottom line was going to be pretty good when the cash was counted.

Well, this week fellow pancake producer Brian Thompson tells us how much better they did: They raised $83,000 for people with sight, hearing and diabetes needs. Compare that to $70,000 last year.

Thompson says thanks to all the volunteers — “as well as the entire community for coming out for pancakes!” About 9,400 customers were served.
