Yeah. The pancakes were that fluffy!
The Pancake Breakfast sponsored by the Ridgefield Lion’s Club was a swimming-in-syrup success! The Lions, the Friends, and several of Ridgefield’s Youth Groups served over 200 people. We raised over $1,100 ($270 in tips alone!).
Thank you to everyone who participated as workers and/or patrons. We appreciate your generosity more than you know. The new, bigger, better Ridgefield Library will become a reality because of the efforts and support of this fabulous community!
Aw, shucks! I was really looking forward to getting together with my Library Peeps and seeing what surprises they had in store for me.
Also, the Friends of the Library usually hold our monthly meeting on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. This month we are NOT having a meeting, so please mark your calendars to come join us on April 13 at 6:30 in the library.
Hope to see you then!

If you are anything like me, you prefer to leave potentially dangerous cooking up to the experts.
What’s better than a scrumptious, affordable breakfast served to you and your entire family with all of your friends and neighbors around you at the Ridgefield Community Center?
It’s hard to imagine anything better, but let’s sweeten the pot, or plate.
- It’s the first Saturday in March (the 5th) from 8:00-10:30, so this breakfast is perfectly timed to get you up and at it for anything you have planned for Sock Monkey Day (it’s a real holiday, People) or National Maple Syrup Weekend. Coincidence? I think not!
- By having breakfast, you are helping to build a new, bigger, better Ridgefield Community Library! No way! Yes way!
The flyer below has all the details you need to know. Note that the Ridgefield Lion’s Club is sponsoring this fundraiser.
Thank you so much, Lion’s Club!
Hope to see you there. Bring your appetites!
Savor the sweetness of being part of such a worthy cause! Join us and dig in!
