The excitement of the Ponoka Stampede can work up some huge appetites and Ponoka is there to satisfy the stomach by providing four free pancake breakfasts during the event.

The Ponoka News will hold their pancake breakfast in front of the Ponoka News on Chipman Ave. and will be running from 8 to 11 a.m on June 25. On June 28 a breakfast will be held at the Ponoka Town Centre from 8 to 11 a.m. and on June 29 the Alberta Cattleman’s Fellowship will be flipping pancakes at the Stampede Grounds grandstands starting at 7:30 and running to 10 a.m. Kinetic Projects Inc. will be holding their breakfast in the industrial park from 8 to 11 a.m.

The staff at the Ponoka News will be making these fluffy flapjacks for all who attend.

Judy Dick, manager at Ponoka News, believes that the breakfasts are important to the Stampede and offer a morning of fun and fellowship.

“Over the years the Ponoka News has been a very big supporter of the Ponoka Stampede, it attracts a lot of people and it is good for the economy of the town, it is a lot of fun too,” said Dick. “The Stampede Association needs the support of the business community to put on a show of this caliber, the whole community gets behind it because of the people that come in.”

There will be a silver plate collection at the breakfast for the Kidney Foundation of Canada.

Last year the Ponoka News raised $1,200 for the Ponoka Food Bank with over 1,500 people in attendance.

Kinetic Project Inc. is also excited to host their pancake breakfast and will be cooking up a storm to satisfy the rumbling bellies of Stampede goers.

Last year Kinetic Projects Inc. served approximately 1,500 people at their breakfast.

There will be a silver plate collection for the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta.

The public will also have a chance to soak the vice president and chief financial officer in a dunk tank for donations.

Dave Hummel, organizer and project manager for the company is looking forward to another successful breakfast and believes it is important to get behind the community.

“We at Kinetic Projects Inc. feel it is important to support our community and its events,” said Hummel. “It’s great to be good corporate citizens and bring smiles to all of our breakfast friends.”

Come with your appetite and be prepared for all the pancakes you can eat.
