Breakfast Results

Sorry to forget to do this!  Thank you to all who volunteered.

Breakfast at St. Clare's on November 5, Gross $653, Net $440; was a bit lighter net because we stocked up on things we needed and could keep for February, and we bought a bit more food (500 sausages, could have gotten by maybe with 450, about 50 went home at the end of the day, but we used all of our normal sausages, all of the maple, and were working on the sausage patties during the last mass) (35 dozen eggs, I saw less than a gallon of cooked eggs left over) (30 lbs of pancake mix, could have done a bit less here, we has several bags of pancakes left over). 

All in all an excellent breakfast.  Thank you all again.
