To the Editor:

The board of directors and staff at Valley Sheltered Workshop wish to thank all who attended the 47th annual Pancake Breakfast on May 5. It was a huge success, with approximately 500 people attending and proceeds exceeding $12,000. We are overjoyed to be involved in a community that supports local social services, such as Valley Sheltered Workshop, even during these tough economic times.

Thank you to all the merchants, businesses, corporations and individuals who donated items for our raffle prizes and silent auction. Congratulations to all the winners! We were also very fortunate this year to have received food donations from Gust John Foods, Julie White, Starbucks and Water Options.

Lastly, the volunteers, especially the Lions Club of Batavia, which donated its equipment and time to make the pancakes; Batavia Fire Department volunteers, who grilled the sausages; Kohl’s employees, parents and friends of the workshop, who also worked that day – we couldn’t have done it without you.

The money raised will go toward the daily operations of the workshop, where we continue to provide a place of employment for adults with developmental disabilities.

Supervisor at Valley Sheltered Workshop
