Pancakes and a chinese auction Sunday

It’s pancake breakfast time again on Sunday, as the Barker AFS students serve up pancakes, sausage, scrambled  eggs, toast, juice and coffee at the Barker Fire Hall. They’ll be serving from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. and the meal is $5 for adults, $3 for children 12 and und under. An immediate family with 2 adults and up to 4 children can eat for $15. There will also be a Chinese auction, so try your luck. This event is not only a fund raiser, but also a community event attended by all ages.  The monies raised are used by the club to send students overseas, host students from foreign countries and to send Barker students on short-term exchanges to other towns and cities within the United States. The purpose of the Short Term Exchange is to give rural students the opportunity to experience city life and vise versa.  This year Barker will send 20 students to Lisle, Illinois for 5 days. In order for students to have the opportunity to participate, the AFS club will offer all students a scholarship to help defray the costs of the trip.
