On December 3rd, the Aluminum Falcons held their 2nd annual Pancake Breakfast/Basket Bonaza at the Union Baptist Church in Mystic, CT. The team set up the previous night at 6:30, arranging the tables and preparing the baskets for the following day's auction. Although the event did not begin until 8 A.M. the students arrived at the church an hour early to make preparation for the Big Event. Immediately after the doors were opened, the Church's cafeteria was filled with hungry supporters. The team all provided their talents, participating in cooking, face painting, outside advertisement, ticket collection, and full team cleanup throughout the event. Although this is only the Falcon's second Pancake Breakfast, the team raised almost twice their last year's profits. Nothing but positivity has been spreading for the Falcon's this year. This is just another explosion in FIRST Team 2168's booming seasonal start.
"We did a great job, team! Final tally is not quite in, but we raised around $6000 with this event. This does include a straightforward personal donation of $1000 from one family, but still! Like, woah!"-Brian Chidley (Head Coach)
