Ever wonder how fabulous flapjacks could benefit those who are in need of United Way services? Come and find out says Ann Marie Earl, the instigator of the 2015 Fabulous Flapjack Fundraiser on Wednesday, October 21 from 7 to 9:30 a.m. at the Vicksburg Methodist Church on S. Main Street.
“We want to support the struggling families in South County,” says Earl, who is the staff person at South County Community Services who wanted to find a way to showcase the good that United Way does in this area. She has organized a big group of volunteers to cook, greet, serve, bus tables, and clean up the fresh hot pancakes, sausage, coffee and juice that they have planned for this community breakfast.
There is no charge for the food, but a donation to the Vicksburg United Way will help support the work of South County Community Services, Boy Scouts, the Library’s summer reading program, and other potential recipients of the United Way funds.
The hope is to have a huge turnout to support this endeavor, Earl says.
