Rotary Pancake Day 2017
The 2017 Rotary Pancake Day was again a rousing success.  Rotary had a great turnout from its members with most members pitching in to help.  For $5 anyone could get sausage, pancakes, and grits.  There were many pick up orders and also plenty of people eating at the Ocean Springs Civic Center.  Sherri Johnson also did an excellent job of organizing the boston butt sale which raised substantial funds. This event raises funds that Rotary reinvests in the form of scholarships and donations to various local charities.
