Hundreds of people visited Atrio, 409 Hooper Road in Endwell today to enjoy a pancake breakfast to benefit Endwell Rotary.  The breakfast was held from 8 this morning until noon and featured pancakes, scrambled eggs, sausage, coffee cake, juice and coffee.

The Endwell Rotary pancake breakfast has been a tradition in the community for decades and is held on the Sunday before election day every November.  A number of politicians visit to shake hands, greet people and perhaps do a little campaigning as well.

Money raised benefits various Endwell Rotary projects.  One of their major projects is to help fund the MEALS Program which helps provide meals and food to needy families in the Maine and Endwell areas.  Maine-Endwell schools are involved in the project as well and help collect food and funds to help those in need in the M-E school district.

Endwell Rotary is involved in numerous other causes to benefit the community including assisting with the up-keep of Highland Park, Rotary Exchange Students  and clean water projects.  Endwell Rotary members volunteered their time to cook and serve breakfast to those who visited.
