Annual 1st Pancake Breakfast Feb. 9 2002

All guests to the Pancake Breakfast had the opportunity to have their blood pressure checked as entering the event.

The Pancake Chefs, in particular, Chef Peter Mitchell (President of Albion College) diligently cooked piles of pancakes for the hungry Albionites who turned out for this successful fundraising event.

VolunTEENS from Albion High School came to lend a hand.
