LBC Memorial Day Pancake Breakfast 2017

Flags lined the path, honoring
those who gave their all in
service of their country.
On Monday, May 29, 2017, Lansdowne Baptist Church served our community in two ways. 1. Those who ran in the 5k race and attended the parade alike (and any other hungry person looking for great pancakes who showed up) were served a wonderful, tasty pancake breakfast meal. 2. We raised money through this fund-raiser breakfast for our Aaron Royal Scholarship Fund, which provides scholarship money for graduating local high school seniors heading for college. We are blessed with very capable volunteers who give of their time and talents to make this meal happen every year, weather permitting. It is wonderful to have this opportunity both to serve and break bread with our neighbors, strengthening our community and sense of connection, both of which God encourages. 



A friendly greeting at arrival and hearty blessing on the way out.
A rare quiet moment in the kitchen before the action began.
Two cooks are seen in the foreground.
The man on the left has a special talent.
When cracking eggs, he can toss an egg into the air, fist bump it,
catch it, and crack it one-handed into the bowl. 
Serving


Remembering and honoring all those who served in the armed forces
and gave their lives in action. As John 15:13 states: "No one has greater love than
this, to lay down one's life for one's friends." 
It was a personal treat to spend time in conversation with Mayor Anthony Campuzano and his wife. Being a contractor himself and me a former contract archaeologist, we were able to swap some really interesting stories. 

Included are some photos of the event and the parade associated with it. It was a terrific day.
