The Rotary club of Burnaby held their 25th Pancake Breakfast with Santa at Maywood Community School on Dec 10th. This year we served a record number of students and their families, three sittings of 200 per sitting for a total of 600. Previous years we had served 450 guests.
Rotarian Neil Mackay coordinated the efforts with help from his family, 9 Rotarians, and 5 Interactors from Burnaby South Secondary School. Neil’s friend Brian Daniel brought his electric key board and played seasonal music.
Kathryn Yamamoto (Maywood Community School Principal) and Emma Park (School Community Coordinator) did an amazing job of organizing the school staff, parent help and volunteers from Burnaby Neighbourhood House.
Santa visited at each sitting and gave out candy canes. Everyone had a great time!
