Pancake Breakfast # 15

At the annual Rotary Run for Life in Stony Plain. As usual an incredible meal put on by William Choy of Bings #1 Restaurant in Stony Plain and the amazing crew of volunteers mostly from the Rotary Clubs of Stony and Spruce Grove. If we weren't biased towards this event I would vote this the best breakfast of the year from the quality and the amount of food. However you do have to "pay" for it by either running or walking (5km, 10km or half marathon) or volunteering some time, so that does add a degree of difficulty to the overall judging ! In attendance - Bronwen, Brennan, Johanna and Gordon

Johanna and Brennan ran 5km, Gordon ran/walked 5km and Carol and Bronwen walked 5km - in memory of Simon.

Pancake Breakfast # 14

At the University of Alberta in Edmonton. A welcome back to school breakfast put on by the Student Union. The food and beverages were standard and of average quality. (Always hard to be too critical when it's for free !) Gordon, Brennan and Bronwen in attendance and we initiated a new participant - Bethany Steen - who it was good to meet up with, and connect with, again.
