Of the many events leading up to the Battle of the Atlantic Sunday, for many in the MARLANT Defence family, the Pancake Breakfast is the highlight and this year’s did not disappoint.

With one of the highest turnouts in recent years, a record $1464.25 was raised in support of Canada’s Naval Memorial, HMCS Sackville. Aside from meal sales, tickets were also sold for a 50/50 draw and also a draw on a beautiful cutting board produced in the MOG 5 Woodshop.

Special thanks to not only the Galley staff but also various MOG5 and Fleet staff who volunteered their time selling tickets, doing dishes and working the serving line to name just a few of the tasks that morning.

Finally, a heartfelt thanks to all those who partook in the breakfast and supported YOUR Naval Memorial, HMCS Sackville.
