Rotary breakfast attendance was up
March 3, 2010 - Frank Robinson
The results are in from the Rotary Club of Warren's annual breakfast and bake sale held this past Sunday.
The following statistics were announced during the weekly Rotary meeting held at noon today at Sunrise Inn:
-- Attendance was up compared with last year, by about 50, to 410 breakfasts sold. At $5 each, that's not bad.
-- As part of the annual event, Rotarians sold 1-pound bags of Dunkin Donuts coffee. Through a special arrangement with Dunkin Donuts, for each $8 bag of coffee sold the Rotary Club got to keep $4. There were 241 bags of coffee sold.
-- There also was a bake sale. Rotarians raised $289 with that work.
The breakfast and bake sale occurs each February from at the Lincoln K-8 School, 2253 Atlantic Street, in Warren.
The breakfasts are prepared and served by Rotarians and students in the Warren G. Harding High School Interact Club. The breakfasts featured pancakes, eggs, sausage, fruit cocktail, coffee, milk, orange juice and a bake sale. Children 3 and under got to eat free. The food, I am told, was good.
I'll put in another plug for some businesses that helped: Dunkin’ Doughnuts provided the coffee and coffee creamer, Bob Evans Restaurants the sausage, pancake mix, eggs, syrup, and butter, Berk Enterprises the paper products, Dean’s Dairy the milk and orange juice, and McFarland & Sons Funeral Home the tickets.
