Pancake Breakfast


Click on picture to enlarge.

Cyndi:  Thankful Thursday is the perfect time to post a collage of pictures from last Saturday's fundraiser for the local Humane Society.  You might have guessed from all the flags in the picture that it was the day after Veteran's Day.  The two-hour pancake breakfast fundraiser was hosted at Chili's by Miss Pat, a manager there.  Jan said that Miss Pat was as nice as could be.

Percy:  Jan was both looking forward to it and dreading it, as the Humane Society folks were going to play both hostess and waitress. Jan hasn't served tables since before the Stone Age and she was a bit concerned she'd either fall down on shaky legs or spill coffee on a donor.  

Cyndi:  But instead of having to run around the restaurant, all she had to do was to stand at the door and help collect tickets and cash.  The local high school Beta Club -  a pre-creaky, still energetic group of young people - came and did the running around.  They did a great job and everyone survived.  Even Jan.

Percy: And Coco's Cupboard brought two kittens and a tail-thumping dog to greet everyone entering the restaurant.  There will be another fundraiser held in a few months and the plan is to have more adoptable animals present.

Cyndi:  Jan has been with the Humane Society for many years.  It isn't as active as it used to be because the members are aging, but they do what they can.  They provide help for people where they can  - emergency pet food, help with spay/neuter cost, etc. - and try to encourage adoptions at the county-run animal shelter.  During the entire month of October, the Humane Society paid half the adoption fee for all dogs and cats adopted there.

Percy:  Have you noticed a pattern here, Cyndi?  Jan said she had a pancake breakfast while she was there, but she didn't even bring a crumb home.  She never brings a crumb home when she eats elsewhere.

Cyndi:  Can you imagine the pandemonium if she did bring home a crumb?  How would she split a crumb eight ways?

Percy:  With a sharp knife!

  15. Thanks for helping the Humane Society. Collecting tickets was the job that I volunteered for when I worked at school. It is the safest.
