Once upon a time, in a village along the Erie Canal, a fundraising idea was presented combining a book and a basket; from that simple suggestion Flapjacks and Fairytales was born.
Plans are well underway for Margaret Reaney Memorial Library’s 11th annual Flapjacks and Fairytales Pancake Breakfast and Theme Basket Raffle.
Scheduled for Sunday, September 18, 2016, a bountiful pancake breakfast will be served from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM, with the basket raffle to follow. This well-loved and looked forward to event will once again be held at the HC Smith Benefit Club.
In case you are new to the event, this is how it works. Individuals, families, groups, organizations and businesses are invited to donate “theme baskets”. In the past, the baskets have been reflective of a variety of themes from cooking to fishing, camping to crafting and gardening to game night; just to name a few. You are welcome to use any type of container as your basket as long as it is large enough to hold all of your items. Since this is a fundraiser for the library, we also ask that you include a book or magazine relative to your theme.
There is no need to arrange or wrap your basket. Our committee is more than pleased to do that for you AND top it off with a colorful bow. The donor’s name will be prominently displayed with each basket so the public is aware of your thoughtfulness and generous support.
Money aside, Flapjacks and Fairytales has proven to be a lot of fun! Anytime you can combine good food and good times for a great cause is something to cheer about. Yahoo!
For over a decade, Flapjacks and Fairytales has provided much needed financial support for the Reaney Library. The board of trustees and staff have been beyond amazed and profoundly grateful for the support Flapjacks and Fairytales receives and we hope we can count on your support once again. Our target date to receive the baskets is August 22, 2016.. Put your thinking caps on, let your imaginations loose and get ready for Flapjacks and Fairytales 2016!
