Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers this Sunday. The IOOF is sponsoring their annual Mother’s Day pancake breakfast this Sunday from 9 a.m. till noon.
All proceeds go to the on going renovations of the IOOF Hall. So give mom a day off from cooking and start it out with taking her to the Mother’s Day breakfast.
