Labour Day pancake breakfast flies into Stettler Airport

A long-standing tradition flew back into town over Labour Day weekend.

The annual Labour Day pancake breakfast hosted by the Stettler Flying Club and the Stettler Magnetos car club took place at the Stettler Airport on Sept. 5.

Running from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m., the well attended event had over 300 people through the gate before 10 a.m., with more still trickling through.

Aircraft of all shapes and sizes lined the tarmac on the cool Monday morning, including four helicopters which flew in for the event.

The cost of the breakfast was $12 for adults, and $6 for those under 12.

On the line cooking were a variety of volunteers including his honourable mayor, Sean Nolls, and members of the local cadet corps.

Breakfast consisted of pancakes, eggs and sausages, which people could eat at one of several tables set up in an airport hanger or outside.
