Ogden Celebration: Ogden Lodge Holds a Successful Pancake Breakfast

The Village of Ogden held its annual community celebration today, and Ogden Lodge No. 754 held a pancake breakfast.  We had a good turnout despite the rain this morning.  I thought I'd share a few pictures.

The fun part of the pancake breakfast is it just isn't about the pancakes.  Often the residents of Ogden hang around and socialize with their neighbors and friends.  They laugh and sometimes make a lot of noise.   

Here's WB Brandon Lewis at the head of the table.  He's getting married very soon, and we wish him all the best.  That's his soon-to-be bride Britanny on the right.

The Ponytail Brigade!  The Girl Scouts meet in our building, and they always come and help us with the pancake breakfasts.  They take out the pancakes and sausage, ask if the diners want seconds, and even clear off the tables.  They always do such a good job.  Thank you girls!  And moms and dads too!

This is WB Sean McBride of Catlin Lodge in the suit.  I was glad to see he got out of jail yesterday in time to come to the breakfast this morning.  Considering his dress, I'm wondering if the man he's talking to is his probation officer.  Just kidding.  Sean was in jail yesterday, and he did call all his friends for bail money, but he was in jail for Jerry's Kids.  He does that every year. 

This is a dangerous bunch.  You see the way he's shaking his finger at me?  I think that may be the leader.  These are a few members of Catlin Lodge.  They always come over for our pancake breakfasts, and this morning, I believe they were leaving there to go over to St. Joe Lodge to perform 4 3rd Degrees this morning.  They do a lot of good work all over.   

That's it.  It was a fun morning.  Thanks to everyone that come over for pancakes, and that's to everyone that helped out.
