Once again, on behalf of the Rotary Club of Los Alamos, I would like to thank our many friends in the community for their recent support of this month’s Cowboy Pancake Breakfast, which benefited our Club’s local and international projects.
More than 250 tickets were sold to the hungry breakfast crowd Sunday morning.

We would also like to give a standing ovation and long round of applause to all the dedicated members of the Los Alamos Sheriff’s Posse who made the event possible.
Not only did they help us set up tables and chairs the evening before the breakfast, but they were back again at daybreak to bring the kitchen to life with the enticing aromas of bacon sizzling and coffee brewing, all against the backdrop of mixing bowls clattering and pancake batter hissing on hot griddles.
The Posse members also cheerfully helped serve breakfast throughout the morning and then stayed to help us with every step of clean-up chores.
After the deduction of food costs, the Posse donated all the profits from breakfast to our Club, a remarkable and greatly-appreciated gesture of generosity.
For those of you who have never attended a Cowboy Pancake Breakfast or haven’t been to one in awhile, be sure to join the Posse for its next breakfast, Sunday, April 7.
Bob Manzanares will be back on guitar to help set the cozy morning mood, and proceeds from April’s breakfast will benefit the Friends of the Shelter (LA animal shelter), which, like our Rotary Club, serves Los Alamos in so many meaningful ways.
Again, sincere thanks to the community and to the tireless members of the Los Alamos Sheriff’s Posse who serve us all so well.
