Carrying on a Tradition

Tradition.  Webster defines it as “an inherited, established, or customary pattern of thought, action, or behavior.”  However, here at Coyote Hill, the definition of tradition sounds more like this, “Memorial Baptist is hosting their established and customary Pancake Breakfast once again!”

Saturday, February 26 found young and old alike showing up at Memorial to begin preparing to feed several hundred people.  They’ve got it down to a system after all these years, and although the line often stretched down the hallway throughout the morning, no one was left standing very long.

As well as the wonderful Memorial workers, there were also some local musicians volunteering to entertain all who attended the event.  Katie Bodkins, Silent Voice, The Canote Family and college students Reena, Mallory & Camry did a wonderful job of keeping attendees’ toes tapping and voices humming along, all morning long.  For a little impromptu entertainment, one of our own boys asked if he could sing a Tim McGraw song for everyone…he was quite the crowd pleaser!

When all was said and done and the breakfast came to an end at 1 PM – the results were wonderful.  Over 750 people fed during those six hours, and nearly $4,500 raised for our children’s recreation fund!  Thanks to all of you, our kids now have the funds to participate in summer sports, go on family vacations and attend concerts and summer camps.

Thanks to the multitude of people who made the morning not only possible, but very successful.  It’s a tradition we love being a part of year after year!
