Hot off the griddle
Jerome Hoff, Josh Hora and Don Fischer work the griddle in the kitchen of the United Methodist Church Wednesday morning, Feb. 1. The three were part of dozens of volunteers who converged on the church for Groundhog Day, a social and fundraising event held at the church for 57 years. Over 500 are estimated to have attended the all-day event to dine on pancakes and patty sausage. The event is sponsored by the men of United Methodist Church.
