Out & About: Capital Area Extreme’s Pancake Breakfast

 

There was a lot of flips at the Capital Area Extreme (CAX) cheerleading teams’ Pancake Breakfast on Saturday, Feb. 7 at the Royalton Borough Building. Lots of pancakes were flipped on the grill during the fund-raising breakfast – and lots of sausage was fried, lots of coffee was poured.

 

The goal was to raise $1,000 for expenses for CAX’s competitions. It costs $100 per youth to compete in recreational tournaments, said Michelle Noon, secretary/treasruer of the Capital Area Recreational Extreme Booster Club.

 

CAX includes girls and boys age 5 to 18 from Middletown, Elizabethtown, Steelton and Harrisburg.
