Hours are from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturdays and 1 to 4 p.m. Sundays. If working outside is not your thing, help is needed setting up, serving and clearing tables at their pancake breakfasts from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. every Saturday during March through April 2. Please call Meg Valovage at 638-2519 to sign up.
