The Father's Day pancake breakfast brought a lot of people together in support of not just all-you-can-eat pancakes, but the Rotary Club and its many local causes as well. In a letter to the Skaneateles Press, Rotary breakfast chair Robin Jowaisas thanked the community for its wonderful support. She offered special thanks to "the many volunteers who make this annual event possible to our spouses, families and friends, to our youth exchange students, their parents and host families, to the scouts, to the firemen, to the Skaneateles school students, Interact Club, and Boys Lacrosse Team, to the Community Band, to the American Legionnaires, and to many more too numerous to name."
