Bottle drive, pancake supper to help send members to events
NORTH BANGOR — A pancake supper planned for Saturday, March 22, is used as a major fundraiser to help send deserving 4-H members to state-wide events.
The supper is from 4 to 7 p.m. at the North Bangor Fire Station on Route 11 and will feature pancakes with local maple syrup, ham, eggs, hash browns and beverages.
Tickets are $7 for adults, $5 for children ages 6 to 12 and free to kids 5 and under.
A bottle drive is going on now, with a cattle trailer this week in front of the fire station for donations. It will continue Saturday during the supper, along with a bake sale.
Connie Gerow, who is in charge of mentoring programs for the Franklin County Cornell Cooperative Extension’s 4-H unit, said funds raised for the scholarship programs send kids to leadership forums in Syracuse as part of the State Teen Action Retreat, or 4-H STAR program, and career-exploration activities on the campus of Cornell University.
“All the proceeds go to help support these different programs offered that some kids might not be able to afford,” Gerow said, adding that the leadership retreat is $75.
“Not everybody has $75, so we offer these scholarships.”
