Serving up pancakes, sausages and coffee while also offering an airbrush tattoo station, colouring corner, line dancing, gift baskets, WestJet raffle, axe throwing and a dunk tank,
“This years breakfast was a huge success! It’s always great to see the community come out so we can properly thank them for all they do for us,” explained Executive Director Jill Bilodeau.
The by donation dunk tank – which featured town councillors Tara McFadden and Pat Wilson as well as Cochrane Eagle editor Chris Puglia – Chuck Steel axe throwing, and raffles helped raise $1,000 for the BGCCA to assist with its programming.
“The Cochrane community is so generous and we are especially thankful for our community partners, they make things like this so easy for us.” said Bilodeau.
