We owe a huge thanks to the many volunteers who gave of their time to help out with this event. From pancake flippers to ticket takers to servers, our volunteers make this event possible. A special thanks to École la Mission and its Principal Claude Viel for both opening the school for the event and for spending the entire morning helping out.
