Letter: Between Friends Food Panty says thank you

By on September 29, 2011

The Between Friends Food Pantry (founded in memory of Blake Denton and Jeff Malewig) would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for the support of our latest fundraiser. The Penny Pancake Event was held at Colonial Cafe on Galena Boulevard on Thursday, Sept. 15, and was a great success.

The turnout was wonderful, and everyone enjoyed plates of delicious pancakes for only one cent each. Many opened their hearts (and wallets) to help others in these difficult economic times. Over 200 grocery items and $475 were donated by generous attendees.

We would also like to give a special thank you to Colonial Manager Scott Parker and his crew for their time and effort in making this a successful event.
