Photo Gallery: BCHS Beta Club Serves Community with a Pancake Breakfast

The Barren Co. High School Beta Club hosted a pancake breakfast last weekend. The breakfast was held at the Glasgow Applebee’s and included unlimited bacon and pancakes for $5. Students were given the opportunity to serve the customers. Such opportunities included waiting tables and preparing plates.
Beta sponsors Stephanie Esters, Julie Smith, and Jessica Dyer were all present to coordinate the event. They say the pancake breakfast was held in hopes of fundraising for the club’s trip to the national convention being held this June in Savannah, Georgia.
Several customers filled the restaurant with the smell of sweet syrup and aromatic bacon. Students placed items onto plates and others served the plates. Overall, the two hour period went well, according to Esters. “We were slammed earlier,” exclaimed Esters.The club says this benefit was the second of the school year, with the last one being held to raise money for St. Jude Hospital.
