Morrison Elementary teachers and administrators teamed up with the Noble County Bikers Association to serve pancakes to 175 hungry folks. That’s one huge pile of pancakes!
On Aug. 17, schoolkids, younger siblings, parents, grandparents and staff were served in the elementary cafeteria. Pancakes, sausage, coffee, juice, milk and water were on the menu.
The event raised $1,555, which will be used for purchasing classroom materials.
“It was a huge success! We had more community involvement this year than in the previous years of the event,” Morrison Elementary Principal Christy Williams said.
