Pancakes, maple syrup – and community

As things were just getting going on Sunday, the men (who always do the serving) were all set for the crowds. Just look at those beautiful big pancakes! (Photo by Dave deLang)

I like this photo because it not only shows the excellent turnout for the pancake breakfast, but gives you a good sense of the interior of the historic former one-room schoolhouse. (Photo by Elaine Kapusta)

While Raymond and I were, unfortunately, not able to be in Queensborough for this past Sunday’s pancake breakfast at the Queensborough Community Centre – I wrote about it ahead of time here –  I am pleased to report that I have it on excellent authority that it was a great success. And I think you can tell for yourself by looking at the photo above, showing the good eats on offer, and the ones to the right and below, showing the community centre – Queensborough’s historic former one-room schoolhouse – packed with happy breakfasters. I’ve written in the past (here and here, for example) about how well the people of Queensborough do community meals like church suppers and pig roasts. The food is always plentiful and reliably delicious. Well, this past Sunday they did it again.

My friend Elaine calls this photo "Hands across the table," and I like that. The Queensborough Community Centre was packed for the pancake breakfast – and it's a time not just for good food but to chew the fat with friends and neighbours, old and new. (Photo by Elaine Kapusta)

My only question is this: when and where can we buy our tickets for next year?

    • My goodness – it does seem a tad early. That said, the weather in central Hastings County has been marvellous the last few days – sunny and warm(ish) days (okay, not so warm today, but Friday and Saturday were good), and cold nights. Which is prefect sap-running weather. Still, I do suspect these folks were a tiny bit ahead of themselves. But soon!
