Pancake Breakfast

Hello Everyone

 

I would like to pass along a huge thank you from MICS to everyone that attended and participated in this years Pancake Breakfast.

We were blessed with some great weather and a nice turnout of island friends and family. It is always nice having some of our local artists and crafters in attendance displaying their wonderful creations, thank you for sharing, you are a talented bunch. Once again these events could not happen without the tireless support of our energetic volunteers. From site set up and teardown, kitchen staff, and those working the merchandise tables, thank you all for your hard work and dedication to the cause. Thanks to Kay and Harvey Taggart for setting up their table to distribute the latest updated Mudge phone lists. I know a lot of work is put into keeping these lists current and Harvey spent several hours ahead of time editing, checking and double checking before running off the latest edition.

 

I am pleased to tell you now that this was indeed a successful event for raising funds for MICS to continue on or mission of providing firefighting and emergency services equipment for Mudge Island. I will give you a mini breakdown of our sales and please keep in mind these totals represent sales from the day and do not reflect expenses incurred. 

 

Food donations            $899.90

Membership donations $597.00

Mudge Gear sales        $1,720.00

Other income                $527.50  (50/50 draw and donations from crafters etc)

Phone list sales            $137.00

 

Total sales at the event less a couple minor IOU’s comes to   $3,881.90

 

I would also like to mention that the family who won the 50/50 draw donated all of their winnings back to MICS. That is very generous of you and we thank you very much.

 

Once again, great job Mudge Island, your continued support of MICS and their events is what keeps us going and able to do the things we do for our community.

 

Next up for the Society will be to begin the erection of our equipment shelter on the MICS property, very exciting times to be sure.

 

Thank you all again, what a great community to be part of and to work with.

 

Sincerely, Scott Flemming and the MICS Board of Directors

Pancake Breakfast Save The Date

Hello All

MICS will be hosting our annual Pancake Breakfast at Dodd Narrows again this year.

 

This years Pancake Breakfast will be on Sunday May 19th from 9am till 1pm.

 

We will have Mudge gear for sale, some of the old favourites and some new stuff.

 

We ask that, if possible,  people to bring their own cups, cutlery and plates. We will have disposable items available but we are trying to reduce waste and by bringing your own reusable dishes and cutlery this will help us run a more environmentally sensitive event.

 

Artists and crafters are welcome to join us again, please get ahold of Scott Flemming  scott722@telus.net

if you would like to set up and display your creations. Tables will not be provided for vendors.

 

Keep an eye out over the next few days for a poster detailing the event.

 

 

 

The Board of MICS thanks you for your continued support

     Thank You.  M.I.C.S find us on the web www.mudge.ca/mics

 

Three Cheers to Robinson Rentals and Wardill Marine

Three Cheers and a big thank you to Robinson Rentals for their donation of a used generator/light plant to MICS, and transport donated by Wardill Marine. This unit will have the ability to provide power and light in the event of a nighttime emergency, hopefully making an event safer than it might otherwise be. We would very much like to thank the Robinsons and the Wardills for their ongoing support of our community, and providing this equipment and transport at no cost to MICS.
